Clever Clock Design Tattles On Energy Usage

Energy Aware Clock (Image courtesy designboom)
By Andrew Liszewski

The Energy Aware Clock provides a more visually appealing, and easier to understand display of the energy usage in a particular room throughout the day. Created by a small army of Swedish designers (Loove Broms, Karin Ehrnberger, Sara Ilstedt Hjelm, Erika Lundell and Jin Moen) the clock forgoes a traditional face in favor of a circular graph that makes it pretty obvious to tell when the energy usage in the room where it’s installed has noticeably increased. And the actual time is indicated by the brightest spikes on the graph.

The Energy Aware Clock is part of the Visual Voltage Exhibition at Design Vlaanderen in Brussels, which runs until October 2nd.
