Lemnos Thomson Clock [BW LC10-26 BW]
Conceived by Yuichi Nara, the Thomson wall clock from Lemnos is a manifestation of woodwork, entirely sculpted from timber and characterized by its gracefully curved plywood frame. Numerals and minute indicators are meticulously carved into the rich, dark surface of the plywood, while the pale layer beneath harmonizes seamlessly with the clock's hands. Recognized for its design excellence, the Thomson was bestowed with the 2004 Good Design Award.
10"⌀ x 1.75"
Since 1947, Lemnos has been dedicated to crafting clocks. This Japanese brand draws its inspiration from the Greek island of the same name, a place steeped in mythology as the abode of Hephaestus, the patron deity of artisans. Lemnos clocks have garnered accolades, including the prestigious Good Design Award, among other honors.
Yuichi Nara was born in Tokyo in 1977. In 1999, he graduated from the Construction Department Architecture Course at Yokohama National University, and moved to Italy in 2000. Nara began designing following a period of work 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 impressed with the richness of the nature and lifestyle that 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.
