The incessant ticking of the common analogue wall clock is muted by the sound-absorbent material of the Felt Clock by Sebastian Herkner. It is typically the sort of piece that gets noticed for its visual and auditory aspects but this example swaps the latter for a lovely tactile quality.

The delightful Leff Amsterdam object upholds the designer's priorities of sustainabilty and usability, composed thoughtfully in a completely charming package. With particular respect to the former consideration, the consumer would be pleased to learn that the cozy chronograph is swathed in a cloak of 60% recycled PET felt.

No numbers appear on the face of the Felt Clock by Sebastian Herkner, reinforcing its minimalist appearance. Yet the unconventional fabric coating and the bright orange hands give it a subdued but exciting aesthetic that's desirable in the contemporary home.
