Designer Anna Marinenko has created a symbolic tribute to Japan through her prototype creation of the Japan Clock.

The Japan Clock is modelled after the Japanese flag, with two circular, plastic plates, one red and one white. The plates rotate together; the red plate displaying the hour number and the white plate, with a pointer, distinguishing the minutes. Additionally, the red plate can be used to write notes on. The clock is a great piece for any minimalistic, modern space.

Anna Marinenko also said she was inspired by blood drops and circles on the water.

The Japan Clock is simplistic and pays a tribute to Japan's disaster. Marinenko's design is flawless and serves as a constant reminder about healing time and moving forward.
