Eyktir-A Clock Made from Recycled Cardboard; Simple and Eco-friendly

You may see different kinds of clocks which vary from color to design, from cost to size. But have you ever imagined of a cardboard clock?

Yes, designer Jón Helgi Hólmgeirsson created a 24-hour Eyktir clock from a biodegradable layered cardboard.

Eyktir was a traditional time measurement system used inIceland. According to Eyktir measurement system, each day is split into eight Eyktir which consists of three hours each.

Jón Helgi Hólmgeirsson was inspired by this old method and created a new clock which was made by recycled cardboard and was biodegradable. The whole materials consist of some cardboard pieces, a clock needle and a battery.

As per the system, each unit is three hours long; therefore, the day is not defined into smaller units of time. This is less stressful and more in tune with natural body rhythms.

The design is simple and remarkably light. Above all, it is eco-friendly and made from recycled materials.
