Functional Clock Shaped like a Japanese Fan

Check out this winner of the red dot design concept award for 2010.

The Spire designed by Sakura Adachi and Ekaggrat Singh Kalsiclock indicates the time with the folding and unfolding of the arms like a Japanese fan. The short arm represents the hour and the moving long arm represents the minutes. Electronics and motor are housed in the base of the clock.
