Pretty Things That Caught My Eye - Clocks

Gather round folks for I have much to report on in this edition of "Pretty Things That Caught My Eye".
This time round I have been gawping at Clocks. The measure of that old Master that we call Time.
Worship at the House of Blues Loves Clocks and here are but a few of my favourites.




Cucu Designed by Pascal Tarabay for Diamantini & Domeniconi in 2005

Transforming 3D tradition to 2D modern .

More details here!


Millelancette designed by Fabrica in 2009 for Diamantini & Domeniconi


Silver Ghost Clock Designed by Yee Ling Wan

Get yours here

Designed by one of my favourite product designers for an exhibition for Isetan Living. There is little that Naoto Fukasawa designs that I don't like.




We actually own the clock above. Known as the Eye Clock (strangely enough) and designed by George Nelson in 1957. There was something rather African about it, which is why we bought it from Vitra.

Eye Clock details Here!



The Koekoek Clock Designed by Thornsten Van Elten and made with ceramic and feathers.

I actually want this clock for my future "daydreaming chamber" haha.

More details here!

So there you have it! I am afraid that I am a rather detail obsessed kook. I spend far too long wandering about design stores. The only reason I do it is to seek out things that really reflect my personality. Our little home is filled with curious little things that tell stories about us both. That's how we like it.

  4. My clock at my dads has just the hands, and then numbers to stick on where you like, but I didn't like the stick on numbers so I just drew them on the wall. It's amazing!
