The Orbita Clock?s ?Revolutionary? Movement

A minimalist wall clock for people who hate the visual clutter of traditional wall clocks.

The name may evoke the movement of planetary bodies, yet the Orbita clock is a refreshingly organic 2-piece design very much reflective of terra firma ? a wooden wall clock concept designed by Portuguese designer, 2Ø3 (Two O Three) forgoing traditional identifying time telling identifiers for a minimalist system demarcated without a single numeral.

Two pared down overlapping wood rings ? each marked with a single dash, representing the hour and minute ? traditional clock hands, numerical indicators, and even a center are nowhere to be found. Instead, the donut-upon-donut Orbita wall clock revolves with barely perceptible speed with every passing minute, a sculptural presence rather than a glaring time keeping one.
At its core, it’s a design relying upon our learned ability to remember the positions of every minute and hour, a competency arguably earned over a lifetime of wondering, “Is it time to go home yet"” or “Just 5 more minutes sleep and I’ll get up”.

2Ø3’s source of inspiration would make Neil deGrasse Tyson proud, noting the two discs mechanism “represents the vast emptiness of space in the universe” and the “rotations of the earth, both on itself (forming days and nights) and around the sun (forming years)”. It’s a minimalist concept that earned the attention and a second prize standing amongst nominees for the Associative Design Guilherme Award ? hopefully a stopgap toward eventual production and availability.
