Highly-organized (or OC) people usually have two staples on their office tables/bedside tables/mantles: a clock and a calendar. You usually need both in order to tell the time and determine what date and day today is; it can’t be one or the other because that’s just plain incomplete. (Again, OC.)
I have some obsessive-compulsive tendencies myself, and if you can combine the two to save space, then why not? Thus comes Ken Lo’s CalenClock concept – not a very creative name as it’s just the two objects put together, but a creative concept that’s been a long time coming.
It’s pretty obvious what the CalenClock is, from the name itself. It’s also pretty self-explanatory once you see images of it.
The hour and minute hands of the clock are positioned over split-page days of the calendar, which you’re supposed to tear off with each passing day. It’s a neat idea and I’d definitely run out and buy one (or two) if it does go into production.
