Finn Magee creates ‘Flat Time’, a poster with a fully functioning digital clock in it.
You can now kill two birds with one stone with ‘Flat Time’. ‘Flat Time’ is a poster and a digital alarm clock put in together. The digital clock is a 7-segment LED display that can tell the actual time. Devised by Finn Magee, this minimalistic device makes your walls look beautiful because of the retro clock print and provides the functionality of the wall clock.
This is only one of the series of ‘Flat’ things that Finn Magee has created. There are two more devices in the interactive series titled ‘Flat Life’. Finn Magee has also made ‘Flat Sound’, a poster to which you can connect your iPods/ music devices and play music from it, and ‘Flat Light’ which is a poster of a desk lamp that has an actual working LED in it.
Finn Magee shows us how minimal things can be effective in providing the complete function; we can do without the bulk and find sleeker, more efficient technology. The innovative ‘Flat Life’ series is a comment on how technology is progressing: It’s becoming less of the faff and more of the function.
