The Sfumato clock employs sfumato, a technique of allowing tones and colors to shade gradually into one another, producing softened outlines or hazy forms. The clock's hands disappear gradually from the outside in. The clock mechanism is concealed behind the plexiglas dial which is gradient printed.
Round & Round by ECAL/Jean Besson is a desktop balancing sculpture made out of a section of ash and a carbon profile in several dimensions. Little plastic elements are used for connecting the parts together.
Sac A Dos / Pochette by Linn Kandel, two bags with a small volume for everyday use. Made of Tyvek - a strong, light and waterproof material - the bags "propose a more durable but also aesthetic alternative to paper bags."
Kitchen Clock by Anurag Etchepareborda is a little table clock that, "by its radical and simple design allows the user to contemplate an aesthetic purely based on the quality of the wood."
