Colour swatch inspired clock
At Fresh Design Blog we love a good contemporary wall clock and this Watch Me wall clock from Normann Copenhagen is up there amongst our favourites.
The simplistic clock design is inspired by swatches of colour that fan out to produce an eye-catching mix of colours and it’s available in a choice of different colour shades.
The clock was designed by Danish designer Rasmus Gottliebsen for Normann Copenhagen. As we can often be found drooling over paint and wallpaper colour swatches, the design seems very apt for us!
The Watch Me wall clock is available from various retailers, including Caroline McGrath, who sell it for £35.

Wall art clock
Karlsson have got attractive and funky clock design down to a fine art.
For those occasions when you want something attractive on your wall, but are limited in space, many of their clock designs combine art with function.
That’s certainly the case with this black steel petals clock, which is based on a spirographic style patterned flower. It draws the eye in like a piece of wall art, but it also serves the practical purpose of helping you keep track of time.
The Karlsson petals clock costs £45 from Dutch By Design.

This stunning Black and Black clock by Diamantini and Domeniconi is a fabulous example of how functional clocks can become stunning pieces of wall art.
The clock is dramatic and would be a great feature on a wall. The bold design is made up of geometric patterns, almost forming into flower shapes at one point.
The Italian designed clock is made of powder coated steel and measures 70cm in diameter.
If you’re like to hang this Black and Black clock on your wall, then head over to Red Candy, where it’s priced at £95.

Space alien alarm clock
If you’ve got fond memories of whiling away time playing the good old Space Invaders arcade game, then here’s an alarm clock to help you reminisce further.
The bright green alarm clock is designed in the shape of a space invader. When the alarm goes off, the clock moves from side to side, just like the game character, and makes a highly appropriate computer game noise. It will feel just like you’re back playing the game!
Oozing with retro appeal, the space invader alarm clock is only £12.99 from Totally Funky.
Update Dec 11: Thanks to Jo for letting us know that M&S have this same Space Alien alarm clock for £12 and it’s included as part of their 3 for 2 Christmas offer!

Scissor design wall clock
It’s great to find home decor products that are both functional and decorative and this fun scissors design wall clock is just that.
Part funky wall art, and part a time-telling device, the design of this clock is really unusual and is sure to catch people’s attention when it’s on your wall.
The clock is laser cut from brushed stainless steel and has a contemporary look and finish. The numbers twelve, three, six and nine are emblazoned across the ‘blades’ of the scissors and the handles and the clock has a high quality quartz movement in the centre that will tell the time accurately.

Bicycle wheel wall clock
The wheels of time have turned – and this old bicycle wheel has been upcycled to give it a new life, as a trendy clock!
The reconditioned and re-engineered bicycle wheel has been transformed into a wall clock by Andrew Fitzgerald, an artist and designer from Hertfordshire, who runs Vyconic.
The bicycle wheel clock is mounted directly onto the wall, through the centre of the wheel, which creates an impression that the clock is floating on the wall. The time-telling ability is achieved through the use of a Karlsson clock mechanism, positioned in the centre of the wheel. The spokes of the wheel naturally lend themselves to looking perfectly at home on the face of a clock.
Whether you’re a fan of cycling, or just like unusual clocks, you can order an upcycled bicycle wheel clock from Vyconic (they are made to order) for £99.

Remember the functioning Big Ben wall clock sticker that we featured previously? If you liked the idea, but don’t quite have the wall space to accommodate it, then here’s another take on the design that may appeal, as it’s smaller and more compact.
This version of the Big Ben wall clock wall sticker focuses on just the clock face, rather than the whole tower too. The sticker comes with a clock mechanism that can be attached to the wall first, so that you end up with a fully functioning wall clock.
The sticker forms the clock face – it comes in two halves – and you simply surround the clock with the relevant parts, making sure the numbers are the right way around to be able to tell the time!
As an added addition, there’ s a little cow sticker with a complementary design that comes with the set too, which can be used alongside the clock or elsewhere.
The Big Ben wall clock wall sticker set is available to purchase from John Lewis and costs £25.
