Areaware Alarm Dock
Designed by Jonas Damon for Areaware, this alarm dock is made in sustainably harvested new growth beech wood.
Remember those faux wood grain GE flip clocks that sat on every bedside table just a couple of decades ago? The Alarm Dock uses a nostalgic product language to meet the progressively thin and disappearing profiles of consumer electronics. It is at once a critique and an accommodation to new technology. Place an iPhone or iPod Touch running a flip clock app onto the dock, and see an iconic and meaningful form return to your nightstand, mantel, or shelf. Your iPhone or iPod's dock connector can be pulled through it, allowing your device to recharge while docked. Fits iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S. Unfortunately the phone isn't included!..
