As you might’ve guessed from the name, the designers looked to the heavens for inspiration when designing the Orbita clock. It only makes sense considering this is where our perception of time begins and ends!
Minimalistic yet thoughtfully crafted, it features a circular void where hands would be. This represents the vast emptiness of space in the universe. At first glance, this also makes it almost unrecognizable as a clock. The two overlapping discs reflect how our perception of time is created by the rotations of the earth, both on itself (forming days and nights) and around the sun (forming years). This orbital-inspiration is made clear in the round shape of the clock and the turntables’ circular movements in relation to each other.
