Handmade copper clock designed by Riki Watanabe

In commemoration of his 100th birthday, artisans produced two kinds of beloved clocks that were designed by him. They feature pure copper frames since this was the metal he held most dear.

Riki Watanabe is an industrial designer often likened to Charles Eames in America. He concerned himself with how to weave Western modernist ideals into a Japanese lifestyle, rather than purely importing them. He successfully incorporated the concept of chairs into a predominantly floor-based lifestyle. The chairs he produced in the 1950s like the Himo Isu and Torii Isu became iconic images of Japanese modernism. Watanabe also designed clocks and watches.

Indulge in the pure and alluring beauty of a timepiece designed by a master.
