Urban Concrete Cuckoo Clocks by Guido Zimmermann

German multidisciplinary artist Guido Zimmermann reinterprets the iconic German cuckoo clock using examples of modern architecture. The artist notes that while “the classic cuckoo clock stands for the prosperity of the middle class and counts as a kind of luxury for the staid home, the updated version as a panel construction shows today’s urban and social life in apartment blocks.” Zimmermann drew on specific examples of modern architecture to create his sculptural “Cuckoo Blocks”. Grids of windows peek out of flat concrete surfaces, with contemporary details such as satellite dishes and cactus houseplants. Don’t forget to check Concrete Para Clocks by LeeLABS.

Continue Time Kinetic Clock by Sander Mulder

Dutch designer Sander Mulder has created the “Continue Time” clock. “On the Continue Time clock, two out of the three pointers rotate around another pointer, instead of the central point on the clock face, as with traditional clocks.

The pointers are still read as with any traditional clock.” Just check a video and you will be amazed!

‘Archi di Tempo’ Electric Clock

At first glance, the ‘Archi di Tempo’ might not look like an electric clock, but the ultra-modern device is indeed intended to provide users with an enhanced experience. Easily mounted on the wall thanks to the faceless design, the ‘Archi di Tempo’ tells time with two separate arms. One arm dictates the hours, whereas the other shows the minutes. The embedded lights shine different colors and shift to convey the time in a more modern yet complex way. The ‘Archi di Tempo’ electric clock is the design work of Bruno Tarabella and offers a somewhat cryptic view of time. Rather than simply display the current time, the ‘Archi di Tempo’ requires a bit of deciphering, which could be correlated to the very essence of time and how it must also be deciphered to be understood.

DINN by Alessandro Zambelli

Alessandro Zambelli has designed a wall clock named DINN for Diamantini&Domeniconi. “Musician-designer Alessandro Zambelli has applied the brilliant originality of La Campanella to a furniture accessory created for Diamantini&Domeniconi. A preview of DINN, the clock with the Campanella bell, can be seen at Maison et Objet (Hall 8, Stand A33-B34), the exhibition rendez-vous in Paris from 5 to 9 September. The stark, round face takes bare essentials almost to an extreme. The material is MDF and comes in white and light oak. Within the circle is one bright, attention-grabbing spark of originality. A small, unexpected bell contrasts brassily with the painted face of the timepiece. This precious detail stands out as the clock’s ‘dinging’ heart. The visual impression made by the hands, in anthracite-coloured aluminium, is equally powerful. Clearly they are key features of its idiosyncratic, passing strike mechanism. In fact the minute hand terminates in a tiny hammer which nudges the clapper of the bell hourly, ‘on the dot.’ The clapper swings. It rings the bell. DINN.”

Moooi “Big Ben” Wall Clock by Marcel Wanders

The gorgeous Big Ben wall clock was designed for Moooi by industrial designer Marcel Wanders. “With time constantly ticking away in our pockets, on our wrists and computer screens the use of wall clocks has almost been forgotten. We still admire works of art and architecture like the big ben that help us tune into London’s time and space, but our personal daily time, the seconds and minutes we spend working and socializing, have become as small as our pockets and as abstract as our computer screens. Big Ben by Marcel Wanders helps us regain consciousness of time’s weight. So why not give it an important position in our living space? Why not go for a giant, decorative, iconic wall clock to give time our own, personal dimension?” Take a look!

Concrete Para Clocks by LeeLABS

LeeLABS have created a variety of clocks made of concrete that all use a parametric modeling algorithm to get their unique radial patterns. “LeeLABS has recently completed Para Clocks, a project that not only seeks to crowd source investment and interest, but aims to crowd source design power as well. Para-Clocks is about combining digital design methods with traditional craft using concrete; and most importantly, involving YOU in the design process. Designing using parametric software allows us to create many variations of radial patterns based off of similar sets of rules; but these are then played with and manipulated, allowing each pattern to be expressive in surprising ways.” Have fun!
