LCD alarm clock.
Industrial Facility examines the travel alarm clock - a product that receives little attention yet continues to be popular among older generations. The design is informed not by shape but by interface. The ambition was to create a digital alarm clock with such simplicity of use that it would render a manual unnecessary. By involving two digital displays - one for time, the other for alarm - that are always visible, adjusting the display becomes intuitive.
The reverse of the clock has both a lock button for traveling (to stop the display inadvertently changing) and a battery compartment that uses no screws. Other functions include display illumination and an alarm/snooze button that also incorporates the speaker.
Every detail, from the interface to the size and material has been considered that result in a clarity rarely seen in these types of products.
