It takes imagination and vision to come up with innovative and intriguing designs for wall clocks. These objects, so frequently used in our everyday life, pose no more mysteries to us. We see them in all shapes and sizes, be they round or square, big or small. Therefore, Alessandro Zambelli’s DINN wall clock will surely enchant everyone with its design.
Alessandro Zambelli has designed the wall clock named DINN for Diamantini&Domeniconi. His main point of inspiration had been Niccolò Paganini’s “La Campanella”, a concert where the main protagonists were a violin and a bell. “La Campanella” remains even today Paganini’s most famous concert. Its first performance was by the maestro himself. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that such an important concert would inspire all branches of art, including interior design.
A preview of the enchanting clock can be seen at Maison et Objet (Hall 8, Stand A33-B34), the exhibition rendez-vous in Paris. DINN can be admired there from 5 to 9 September. DINN’s design takes basic necessities to an extreme. The clock has a stark, round face. The material used for DINN is MDF and comes in two color variations: white and light oak. The clock would look incredibly simple and unassuming were it not for the bell placed at its top. The little bell contrasts powerfully with the extreme simplicity of the wall clock.
This enchanting little detail is meant to be the clock’s ‘dinging’ heart. The clock also contrasts with the aluminium hands of the clock which are painted in anthracite. Another interesting detail is the minute hand. It ends with a small hammer that nudges the clapper of bell hourly. The clapper swings and rings the bell, giving the clock it’s well deserved name.
