How did you interpret the design brief and your specific moment?
I looked at the brief from a personal point of view and designed an object that connects the given time to my daily life. At 7:06 I am still in bed sleeping. If I am awake at this time, I usually take a peek at the clock to find out how much longer I can stay under the sheets before I need to get up.

The Herman clock is designed for the bedroom and other rooms that shift between daylight and darkness. The dial of the clock paints a graphic picture of black and white lines, dividing the display in 12 zones, one for each hour of the day. The white lines are made of a fluorescent material that is "charged" by daylight and creates a glowing display in the dark. A major influence has been optical illusions like the Hermann grid, where a visual distortion caused by black and white lines makes you see patterns that are not there.
