History: 
Takenobu Igarashi is the designer of the world’s largest train station clock, devised to withstand earthquakes and equipped with photovoltaic panels. The “Big Clock of Stars,” as it is known, hangs on the outer wall of Sapporo Station in Hokkaido, Japan. Another clock designed by Igarashi is located on both the station’s east and west concourses. The latter serves as inspiration for his Eki Wall Clock, which is crafted by Lemnos.

Lemnos has been making clocks since 1947. The Japanese brand took its name from the Greek island, which according to Greek mythology was inhabited by the god Hephaestus, the protector of all craftsmen. Lemnos clocks have been the recipient of the Good Design Award, among others.
