Red dot award
A clock that hides time until pressed inwards? Yes, absolutely right! Designer Sejoon Kim of South Korea has designed a Vague Clock where the users should touch the flexible surface to reveal the time. The squashy mild cover gives the feeling of having to chase time. Nowadays people are bombarded with so much information that can increase stress in our daily lives. Time can certainly be one of them and unnecessarily “press” people. This was the idea that inspired the designer. The clock is updated by GPS so the time remains accurate despite the hands being touched. The design concept was awarded at the 2010 Red Dot Awards. Really very festive!

We do not pay attention to door handles, except when we want to open the door. I also have never thought about it before. Door handles are always dirty, especially in public places. That's why we need the door handles which sterilize themselves. Bomi Choi solved the problem and won the award Red Dot Design Concept. It's pretty simple and straightforward idea. The design uses ultra violet light. When the door knob untouched, the UV lamp will light up and begin the processes of sterilization. As soon as you try to take it, UV lamp will switch off. UV Ray is a very good and effective means to kill bacteria and germs.
