There are the serious times for reflecting on the vile systemic expressions of capitalism (like the actions of CEOs or politicians), and there are other times when you enjoy the quirky beauty of design, especially when it relates to objects made from recycled materials. This is an example from The Grateful Thread blog: clocks made from old warehouse stock vinyls. I think they look gorgeous: I love the whole idea, from choice of colours and labels to redefining the hand of a clock as the arm of a record player. Great way of transforming someone’s junk into someones else’s treasure. And it looks like you can even custom-order your own clocks!
