Although I can’t understand why anyone needs a watch when we all have cellphones in our pockets, “Eye of the Storm” really caught my attention. A Chinese-born and German-based product designer Yiran Qian designed a watch without a face which recently won the Red Dot 2010 Design Concept award. The inspiration for its name came from the calm center of a destructive storm.
The watch is completely black and looks really weird until its side button is pressed, illuminating the time.
This unconventional design not only lowers production costs, but also helps people that may be sensitive to the metals generally used in watches.
