Reclaimed materials are all the rage, but how many upcycled products can boast a past life in the bowling alley?

We like the look of this abstract Strike clock, and there's a lot more to choose from on the site.

Running late is no fun, but designer Dario Serio's playful design shakes up the standard circular formation while still allowing you to keep tabs on the time. Available in the US at Unica Home.
