The name of the 3P Clock was derived from its shape which has 3 vanishing points. The 3 segments which form the clock face are made entirely of cherry wood and together create a hexagon shape. The 3P Clock looks like a cube but this is merely an isometric illusion based on how the brain puts together the shading and the tapering perspective of the parallelograms.
Note that the face of the 3P Clock isn’t completely flat as is often the case with examples of this illusion, just not as pointy as a real cube would be with a depth of 3.5 inches and length of 10 inches.
These precision cut wooden clocks are produced by Robocut Studios and the design was a collaboration between this Montreal based workshop and Baron Magazine. They’re part of a limited edition range and so won’t be around for ever but at the time of writing you can still order yours for $80 here.
I’d have to say it’s one of the easier geometric minimalist clocks to read as the hexagonal shape of the isometrically represented cube relates to the numbers on a clock’s face; the corners roughly match up with 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00 and 10:00. Not only does the clock itself have a stunning minimalist design, the packaging is also decidedly minimalist making it a great gift for design types.
