“They live in their hometown”
This eyecatching and inventive clock by Korean designer, Dongjin Byeon, does not employ numbers and hands to show time, instead, the figures of an elderly woman, her granddaughter and a fast-moving, dog represent hours, minutes and seconds respectively.

The figures move through the scenes of daily life that are arranged around the circumference to indicate hours. For example, when the grandmother Home Works Best picks of domestic design sits on a bench, it is about 7:00 am/pm with the assumption that she would take a rest on a bench looking at the sunrise/sunset.According to Byeon, his clock also “suggests the daily patterns of our lives but it also implies our aspiration for a simple life.”
