A clock that knits 

Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has designed a clock that literally knits time.

Every passing of a half hour is marked by the knitting of a mesh, a full day is registered as one round around the clock and a year results in a 2-m-long [6′ 5″] scarf. After one year they yarn has to be replaced with a new one and a new year can be knitted.

Elise has some other cool concepts. (via fastco)

When Bookshelves Attack 

There’s been a virtual onslaught of innovative bookshelves this week, so I thought I’d do a quick recap of what I’ve seen. Colossal has not been immune to really great bookshelves.

Some clever new shelf concepts from Shay Carmon and Ben Klinger, of Israel-based Studio Ve. More info and images over at core77.

 

German designer Miriam Aust has devised a modular method of displaying old, unused books by creating boxed frames that scale to individual books. Extra space can be used for more storage. (via design boom)

 

The Trick and Cave bookshelves from Sakura Adachi. (via paul over at dudecraft who is a gentleman and a scholar)

 

Bookshelf/coffee table designed by Shay Alkalay. The slats serve as both bookmarks and storage, while the spines of the book form the top of the table. (via sight unseen)

 

And lastly the delightfully vertical Stair Case shelf by Danny Kuo. (via doorknob)

Any other hot bookshelves I’m missing?
