Magis Cu Clock

by Naoto Fukasawa, from magis

magis cu clock

magis cu clock

Design Naoto Fukasawa, 2013
Injection-molded ABS plastic
Made in Italy by Magis

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa offers a contemporary twist on tradition with his Cu-Clock for Magis. Cleverly stripping away the ornamentation, wooden gears, pendants and chains that define the look of the traditional Black Forest cuckoo clock, Fukasawa left in its place clean lines, standard injection-molded ABS, and battery power.

Cu-Clock is offered in your choice of three roof colors. The cuckoo sings the hours and sounds a single "cuckoo" on the half hour. Sound can be turned off if desired. Includes battery.

9" w | 11.25" h | 3.5" d

$349.00 + free shipping
(white with green roof is in stock and ships immediately. Please allow 3-4 weeks for all other options)

Naoto Fukasawa

Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa (b. 1956) graduated from Tama Art University in 1980 and quickly began working as a designer for the Seiko-Epson corporation. He came to the United States in 1989 and started working for the then upstart ID Two company, which employed only 15 people at the time. In 1996, he helped to set up their Tokyo office and served as its head while they became known as IDEO. Fukasawa remained with the company until 2003 when he established his own company, Naoto Fukasawa Design. To focus on household appliances and sundries, he created the ±0 brand, but was also becoming well known around the same time for products such as MUJI’s CD player (which is in MoMA’s permanent collection), mobile phones “Infobar” and “Neon,” as well as new works with Italian companies B&B Italia, Driade, Magis, Artemide, Danese, and Boffi.

The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with Stepladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrisons Bottleand the Lyra stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the Bombo stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrisons technologically advanced Air-Chair Michael Youngs Dog House Konstantin Grcics Chair One the Me Too line of childrens objects and furniture, and the Striped family from the Bouroullec brothers.

Looks great, no instructions
, less than a month ago.
I got two more of the white/white. It’s awesome, and the sound is delightful.
The little bird and a metal rod were just rattling around in there, and there were no instructions. It took some figuring out to get right and the bird was knocking against the back for a while.

Cuckoo clock
, more than a month ago.
My wife and I needed a new wall clock to go with our updated kitchen and we were looking for something unusual. This clock fit the bill in so many ways! It works within our contemporary design, keeps great time and the cuckoo is terrific - we love it! We also love that it shuts off as well!
We love and recommend this clock!
