AC 01 Alarm Clock by Jasper Morrison - White
Punkt. AC 01 offers you the pleasure of going back to the traditional alarm clock for everyday use. Why have your cell phone sitting on your night-table, when you can be woken up by a superb design object such as the AC 01? No radiation emissions, no unwanted calls in the middle of the night; just the pleasure of trusting your sleeping hours to a wonderfully simple object that, thanks to its extraordinary simplicity, will delight you every time you wake up to it.
This clock is carefully conceived, as are all Jasper Morrison designs. The case is L-shaped extruded aluminum, real mineral glass fronts the clock which has luminescent hands and markers, as well as an LED light which is activated by pressing the back of the clock. At the 12 o'clock position is a dot alarm indicator, so at a glance you can tell if the alarm function is engaged or not. The alarm time is set through one dial on the back which protrudes through the clock cover. To set the time, one needs to remove the cover which reduces the chance of errors when setting the alarm. Three LR44 batteries each power light, alarm and timepiece, allowing longer overall battery life estimated to be about 1 year. Thoughtful design of the AC01 clock is meant to facilitate our lives, not complicate it.
