Chilean-born, UK designer Francisca Prieto's Antitype Clock and other functional typographic objects are a delight to behold. Architectural at the same time typographic, her re-interpretation of the conventional clock is inspired. It features The Antitype, a three dimensional typeface that “works with the essence of each character. Its uniqueness comes from its interaction with its environment in terms of playing with lights, reflections and shadows.” Her Asterisk Bookend is shown at bottom right.
