Taking the term “cutting a record” a bit literally, artist Pavel Sidorenko has created a range of wall clocks from recycled 12” vinyls. Most of the records hail from Sidorenko’s native Estonia, so you might not be familiar with some of the labels (Supraphon, anyone?). But what does that matter? Once they’ve been re-imagined as these fantastic wall clocks their long-playing days are well behind them anyway. Shame.
Many people take inspiration from their music, but with the Vinyl Idea Clock, Sidorenko has taken great chunks out of it. So many, in fact, that it’s only on further inspection that you’d notice this used to be a record. Prompting your own bright ideas with its winged-lightbulb silhouette, this striking design is far more inspirational than its Euro-pop past – the perfect retro flourish to any office or home.
