If we’re honest we never, ever thought that we would write a post in praise of the cuckoo clock.
But then this morning we found a post from designspotter.com with what can only be described as gorgeous, modern cuckoo clock from Italian based CUCUCITY.
There is of course no reason to dislike cuckoo clocks, at the end of the day a cuckoo clock is just a clock.
Albeit a clock with a bird that pops out and sings every hour.
What there is to dislike, however, is the olde world aesthetic of traditional carved cuckoo clocks and the brutal sales strategy with which such alleged cultural artifacts are remorselessly stuffed down the throats of tourists.
But we digress.
CUCUCITY’s clocks are a mix of modern sticker art coolness and classic 1950s George Nelson-esque charm.
Produced in Italy using German produced mechanisms CUCUCITY’s clocks not only provide a cuckoo on the hour, but in the background the gentle flow of a waterfall. And perhaps most importantly you can control the volume and also send the little feathered fellow on holiday if you want.
And he sleeps at night.
As we say, we never thought we’d find ourselves writing about cuckoo clocks, and now we can well imagine purchasing such.
It’s a crazy old world
