    In an office environment, people tend to have full agendas with many meetings.
    Therefore increasing time awareness,by knowing your personal and other people’s agendas in meetings, could be helpful.
    We want to achieve this through the use of peripheral interaction design, inspired by Weiser’s vision on CalmTechnology [12].
    This paper presents the design process that led to effMeet, a peripheral interaction design that aims at increasing time awareness in meetings.
    effMeet subtly informs people of the remaining meeting time and communicates the users’ availability statuses to participants in other meetings by using their business cards as tokens.
    This paper contributes to research in the area of calm technology[12] and Ambient Information Systems [10] by proposing an innovative design which combines both peripheral perception and interaction.
