Many people battle daily with their alarm clocks, whether it be abusing the snooze button  or accidentally turning it off. This can lead to the throwing of said alarm clock across the room or flipping it over in a fit of rage. Designers for French company Lexon have created an alarm clock that you are supposed to turn over to activate and deactivate, simplifying the morning routine.

Designed by Adrian and Jeremy Wright, of London-based practice DesignWright, the FLIP clock turns on and off by physically flipping the clock over. Each side of the rectangular clock is the word ON or OFF, indicating whether the status of the alarm by whichever word is visible. The LED display adjusts when the clock is turned by ninety degrees, so the numbers are never upside down.

If you’re not quite ready to turn the clock over, you can hit snooze by touching the top of the clock. The clock is made with ABS plastic with a rubberized finish and comes in ten different colors. You can buy your own FLIP clock wherever Lexon products are sold.
