From L to R: Lithe Clock, Manifold Clock, Perspective Clock (Photos by Studio V)
Innovative Clocks by Studio Ve
My hubby and I still don’t have a clock up on our living room wall, or anywhere in our house for that matter. It’s been a subject of conversation many times upon multiple visits to World Market and Target, yet the idea hasn’t actually come to fruition. Not that it’s a necessary staple of the household, but we know it would make a nice decor piece. The only thing that comes close is a clock I constructed in seventh-grade plastics shop class. I remember those days exactly…being mocked while I cut out triangles of various sizes out of opaque white, transparent neon yellow and transparent neon pink plastic sheets, promising that they would, indeed, form a clock in the very near future. It all ended up coming together (which made everyone eventually shut their traps), and it lives on today, sitting in my kitchen (although it does need new batteries).
I guess it’s things like that that catch my attention…the unusual, the creative, the things that were probably laughed at in their idea stages only to leave everyone in awe upon completion. I came across this brand called Studio Ve as I perused my usual morning inbox, as part of a newsletter from The Grommet. Now these are the kinds of clocks I’d see on my walls…pieces of art…items that don’t immediately look like clocks upon first gaze. Do want.
Studio Ve has three models right now:
The Manifold Clock

“Time repeats itself, yet it is ever-changing. The Manifold Clock is aimed to emphasize exactly this property of time – ever changing yet remains the same.” I’m not exactly sure how to better explain this one. It’s just cool and clever. Read more/shop for it here or shop the Grommet sale here!
The Lithe Clock

This one lives up to its name…and looks as graceful as a reed blowing in the wind or a ballet dancer. I could see this one above our couch! Read more/purchase here.
The Perspective Clocks

This one just looks freakin’ cool. There are several variations to this one in terms of this one, each focusing more on the hands than the actual face of the clock. Throughout the day, the hands form different angular shapes. See all the variations/read more/purchase here!
My favorite thing about all of these are the prices!!! At $64 to $124, they are easy additions to a household that will last for a long time. They are so perfectly neutral that they can fit into just about any environment, I think. I might just have to grab one of these (Perspective one, I think, once I learn to read it…it took me long enough to go from digital to analog to begin with!). I can’t wait to see what Studio Ve comes up with next.
