It isn’t often that a design takes me completely by surprise, but I’m pretty sure I’ve not seen anything like Diamantini & Domeniconi’s Gomitolo Wall Clock.
The clock is the product of a collaboration between a fashion designer and an industrial designer with the ethos of “challenging preconceptions by bringing products together with totally unexpected materials”. In layman’s terms, this is a giant clock covered by a removable knitted cover, giving the clock a cosy retro look (the cover reminding me of knitwear from the 70s). It is available in two sizes, 500mm diameter or a massive 900mm, with a choice of six colours for the smaller size and four colours for the bigger size.
The Gomitolo Wall Clock is available from Nest, priced just over £210 or just under £400 depending on the size.
