Takenobu Igarashi is the designer behind the “Big Clock of Stars” which hangs on the outer wall of Sapporo Station in Hokkaido Japan since 2003. He has also designed another clock on both east and west concourses of the same station. The clock has double-faced dials in black and white and the clock numbers half below are designed in a way for easy reading from the ground. This new clock was introduced with its design direction based on the Sapporo Station Clocks.
The clock has a beautifully designed dial with original number types, and its frame is made with aluminum sand casting and lathing. The distance between its dial and glass is minimized. It truly is a design clock in its ultimate simplicity.
