Called Cube, the watch would have a digital display and come in a range of colours.

    Cube Clock by Boym Parnters for Kikkerland, year 2006.
    It pops up straight on Google.
    Designers should do a little research before rushing their ideas out.

      Your example doesn't qualify as nulling Zaschlers wristwatch.

      Yes it uses a 'trompe l'oeil' escheresque typology, but the scale, technology & design are completely different.

      As Paul mentions this design pushes the typology to a new level and is evolutive, therefore qualifying its reason to exist.

  • Rico

    Where can we find this watch?

    • Chuck

      errr by the looks of it, there is only one and it's made out of cardboard

      • amsam

        LOL Chuck best comment yet.

  • robert

    This is a joke, right?! I've just come up with a concept for a shrinking magic helicopter… well I've drawn it with felt tips in my "ideas journal" anyway.

  • Hey cbm, your wall clock would look excellent strapped to a wrist! Are you serious? Sometimes it takes a little twist on an existing design to take it to the next level, don't you think? A great example: a chair.

  • flippydoodle

    That looks awesome! I want!

  • i'm with robert, nothing else is needed to be said.

  • meg

    Can I buy this watch? In pink….Yes Pink…
