I’m really loving the work of Italian design brand Diamantini & Domeniconi these days. Founded in 1965, the brand specialized in the creation and production of classical furnishing-clocks. Since then with the collaboration of established and young international designers, Diamantini & Domeniconi have gone on to produce other aspects of homeware in stylish and contemporary fashion.
However, I am still fascinated by their extensive range of interesting clocks…
This concave clock created by turned wood conveys simplicity in it’s purest form.
This beautiful, textrous knitted fabric covered clock is the result of an industrial designer and a fashion designer working together.
This chunky and smart black and white clock has to be my favourite, it screams stylish retro Italian design.
Mixing modern colors and retro taste, this ‘Snap’ clock is inspired by the old train station wall clocks.
The dial pivots, allowing it to be either hung on a wall or used as a table clock.
A take on the classic shape of the cuckoo clock cut in half with the bird coming out of the side in a sweet silhouette.
