The series of clocks created by designer Yota Kakuda pursues such a form. Most of his clocks have a round wooden frame inside which twelve numbers are arranged, along with an hour hand, a minute hand and a second hand – a format that has been passed down through the years. He notes that in the process of designing these clocks, he came up against difficulties the kind of which he had never experienced before.
For example, looking at the layout of the clock face, compared to the numbers 1,2,3, on the right hand side, the numbers 10, 11 and 12 on the left hand side require more space since they have two numbers, and as such, the balance is apt to be upset. This problem can be solved by making the size of the numbers smaller overall, but when you move away from the clock, it becomes harder to read. To arrange twelve large numbers on a toric surface in such a way that they do not give off an unnatural aura requires a considerable amount of skill and ingenuity. When you look at this clock, you will probably notice that each number slightly deviates from its geometrical positioning. #WD-YK18-18-1020
