Working as a transmitter for your phone alarms, JustTheBell helps get you up on time without the distractions of your digital device

If your smartphone has blurred the lines of what activities are prioritized beneath the sheets, you may want to give JustTheBell a look. Designed by DAN and TBWA, where Paris-based artist Ignasi Giró is the Innovation Director, it’s an alarm clock that can be set using a smartphone and enables the user to keep their phone and its myriad distractions outside the bedroom.

The aesthetically-pleasing beechwood cube is shorter than a smartphone (8 x 8 x 8 cm) and consists of a speaker and face with the product logo and light. Using the JustTheBell app, users can set up their alarms and beam them over to the device. Once that is complete, they are free to turn their phones off or jump into silent mode, with the security of knowing they will be awakened on time.
