Traces of Time is a timepiece that explores the formation of sand dunes, allowing the user to experience this natural phenomenon through the passage of time and movement of light. Inspired by the process of formation of the rich geometry and patterns that exist in the desert landscape, Almulla designed a product that looks at time, light and movement. The built-in timer moves light across the timepiece, gradually illuminating each of the six profiles as the day progresses, using two different colours of light to represent day and night. As the light moves, it brightens each numeral positioned in front of the profiles to indicate the current time.
