The Overlap from design duo Alvaro Alvarez and Maria Lopez is about perception and precision. The minute disc revolves and intersects with the hour disc every hour as the four-pointed center secondary disc re-aligns every 15 seconds creating a visual similar to that of early computer game design. Discreet, simple and clean—this minimalist clock concept is more complex than it seems.
