Do you remember the days when you used to listen to music on vinyl records? Nowadays it’s unpopular, but the records inspired a designer from Tallinn, Estonia to create an original wall clock collection. Each item of Re Vinyl by Pavel Sidorenko is unique not only because of the wide variety of forms (they can be copied), but also because of usage of rarity records. Discreetly crafted on the theme of scenography or animal creatures, the collection comes in a variety of story-telling silhouettes while retaining the grooves and record labels reminiscent of the heydays of acoustic recordings. You can buy these interesting items on the designer’s site.
