Erase time with the Dry Erase Wall Clock by Ricardo Saint-Clair,
Have you ever looked at Ponoko’s range of materials and wondered what you would do with say, the whiteboard?
Brazilian designer Ricard Saint-Clair’s 2005 design is a siple clever wall clock features a face made from a dry erase board, creating the ideal space to note appointments, jot notes, or leave messages for others or disregard the linear nature of time.
Comes with one dry erase marker with eraser, which discretely hides in the side of the clock.
Another by the same designer is the Chalkboard Bud Vase
This playful bud vase features a chalkboard front that can be used for drawings, messages, and more. The top of the vase is home to a removable glass tube designed to hold water and flowers. A small hole on the side of the vase holds the included chalk.
This design is a similar concept to that previously featured on the Ponoko Blog by Martin Konrad Gloeckle and his Un-Readymades which was part of his artifact for his thesis on design democracy, personalization, and mass customization.
Great minds think alike..
