What a Tweeter

Don’t you have a love/hate relationship with your alarm clock? It’s probably one f the most reliable friends you’ll ever have yet we despise them. Error is the “little alarm clock that could.” To emphasize how annoying it is, Error looks like speaker tweeter. Now, it doesn’t necessarily function as a clock, but designer Niek de Kort wanted to create something that epitomizes the classic love/hate – happy/angry relationship, ultimately leading to Error’s destruction.

    "…it doesn’t necessarily function as a clock…" Well then what's the point?

    Nor does it function like a tweeter. Nor is it clear why speaker tweeter's are supposed to be annoying in some manner similar to alarm clocks. This is an interesting design, where interesting is a euphemism for "there is no inherent logical, functional or aesthetic appeal to this, yet it was rendered nonetheless".

    Cheers,
