Inspired by the moving shadows of outdoor objects such as trees and buildings, designer Hanhsi Chen and engineer Chiyu Chen teamed up to create the Shadow Clock. It is a luminous time teller that casts three shadowed arms which represent the hour, minute and second to easily tell time.

Equipped with a halogen light and the inner workings of a conventional quartz clock, the Shadow Clock is unique only in its design. Not only does it add light to your surroundings, it's adjustable to add just the right amount. Stats for Illuminating Time Tellers Trending: Older & Chilly
