Riki Public Clock with Squares WR17-07
This four figure "Public Clock" is designed by the pioneer of modern Japanese design, Riki Watanabe. The clear and large numbers on the clock's face, combined with the distinct squares around the perimeter, make it easy to tell the time and appears gentle on the eye. The minimalist black frame with its simple and modern face, makes this clock appear elegant in many different styles of interior and a 'timeless' timepiece for your wall.
Riki Watanabe (1911-2013) was a pioneer of modern Japanese design. Riki helped establish the Japan Industrial Designers’ Association and received many awards including the Milan Triennale Exhibition Gold Award, the Mainichi Design Award, and the Japanese Medal of Honor with purple ribbon awarded by the Government of Japan during his 102 years of life. Today, Riki is known for many of his award winning designs including furniture, tableware, clocks and even designed the interior of hotels. His series of wall clocks and desk clocks are some of the most frequently reproduced in the world today.
