Tic + Tac Clock by Kartell

Philippe Starck

Kartell Tic Tac Modern Clock in Metallic Chrome.
The Tic Tac clock was designed by Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet for Kartell in Italy. The Kartell Tic Tac clock is one of the best new design clocks of the last decade! A super clean minimal design by Philippe Starck and Eugeni Quitllet who are known for their fresh take on modern design. The very attractive Tic Tac wall clock is the perfect time piece for the business, home office, kitchen, living room, study, etc.
A time(less) design classic!

Simple and clean design are the qualities of the Tic Tac Clock. The square transparent frame of the clock with three available color backdrops give it a wonderful contemporary look. Roman numerals engraved on the surface encloses a flat clock face and comes in three versions (white, black or chrome). Starck orange signature color is visible in the logo on the clock face and in the orange hands. The Tic Tac clock also features three thin colored hands for a chromatic synthesis transforming time into an aesthetic experience.

Philippe Starck is a legend of modern design. He's known for his luxurious hotels and boites around the world -- notably the Peninsula Hotel restaurant in Hong Kong, the Teatron in Mexico, the Hotel Delano in Miami, the Mondrian in Los Angeles, the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York -- designing the total environment from layout to furniture to linens.

But he has made perhaps his most permanent mark on design through his bold reworkings of everyday objects. In reimagining and rethinking the quotidian, he has produced some of the iconic shapes of the 20th century, including his leggy chrome juice squeezer , the reimagined Emeco aluminum chairs, and the witty Louis Ghost polycarbonate fauteuil.

When Starck turns his bold vision toward a chair, a shoe, a toothbrush, it's clear he thinks deeper than the glossy surface.
