Description:
Designed by Yuichi Nara for Lemnos and handmade in Japan, the CUCU is a contemporary spin on the classic cuckoo clock, brightening up any room with the soothing sounds of nature. A white cuckoo bird announces the hour with a babbling brook and the distant chirping of birds in the background. Functioning as both a wall and table clock, the CUCU has three-step volume control (loud/soft/off) with a light sensor that prevents the bird from chirping when it’s dark.

Measurements:
4" x 7" x 10"

History:
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.

Yuichi Nara was born in Tokyo in 1977. In 1999, he graduated from the Construction Department Architecture Course at Yokohama National University, moving to Italy in 2000. Nara began designing following a period working at a glass studio and an architect’s office in Venice. In 2006, he graduated from Venezia Construction University. During a trip to Noto, Japan, he was so impressed with the richness of the nature and lifestyle, he decided to return to Japan and moved to Notojima. In 2007, he established the Noto design office. Studying local materials and learning local techniques and applying them to his work, he attempts to design products that enrich everyday life. Alongside his design activities, he also grows rice in a rented untilled paddy field.
