This kitchen timer resembles a toy truck’s wheel, suspended by a thick triangular base. The numbers are etched in white at regular intervals, and the wheel slowly turns as time counts down. The design of this device cannily mimics a truck wheel, which rotates slowly as it climbs steep inclines or as it carries heavy loads. Designed by Dane, Mads Odgard, this timer reflects how many Danish classics balance a practical quality with a sculpted, organic aesthetic. His mission is: “Keep it simple, and the earth livable.”
