A shivering bracelet that keeps time

Lars Marcus Vedeler and Theo Tveterås have created an unconventional ‘watch’ that vibrates to mark the passing of time.

Described by the duo as a bracelet, the ‘Durr’ has a bright 4cm-wide disc where a conventional watch face should be. Available in five disc colours (including the vibrant ‘Banana Yellow’), its strap is made of vegetanned leather, which also acts as the back-cover of the Durr. The bracelet vibrates every five minutes, reminding the wearer of how much time has passed.

Vedeler and Tveterås, from Oslo studio Skrekkøgle, say they wanted to play with our perception of time, pointing out that we often experience time faster or slower than it actually passes. They have initially released an alpha run of fifty Durr bracelets (ten in each colour), as they put them together by hand, but they seem to have taken the design world by storm.

Take a closer look at the bracelets here – would you wear one?
