Minimalist wood block + high-tech LEDs = one fabulous combination. We love the simplicity of this Japanese clock design: when the clock is turned off it resembles little more than a wood block. When turned on, the LED numbers shine through the wood, transforming the simple block into a seventies-style alarm clock (oversized numbers and all).

Designed by Takumi in Japan, this limited edition handmade clock can be found at Compact-Impact.
