“The inspiration for Raster is the checkerboard. There are many ways to handle this inspiration. I chose a subtle way with classical 7-segement digits to tell the time.
Raster is a fashionable mixture of traditional and geeky elements for those who prefer it subtle and simple but stylish.
The display consists of a panel of massive squares and hollow ones. Only the hollow ones light up to tell the time. They are made of square pyramid bases covered by glass squares. The trapezoid faces of the pyramid bases represent the classical LED number segments. The resulting numbers resemble their originals, but look a bit different since the massive squares remain unlit. Instead of using different colors for the checkers, I chose the same material but a different geometry so the case looks cool when the time is not told.”
