Riki Wooden Clock 25cm or 30cm
We love our Riki clock
“Beautifully designed with perfection”
It is easy to read and our young kids can now finally read the time.
The design is absolutely timeless and it will always bring nostalgia and calmness to the space
wherever you decide to hang.
Designed by Riki Watanabe 1911 - 2013
Considered one of the pioneers of post-war Japanese design, after graduating from the Woodcraft Department at Tokyo Higher School of Arts and Design (currently Chiba University),
Riki Watanabe joined architect Bruno Taut's office in Gunma in 1936. In 1949, he established his own design studio, and
quickly won recognition for his low-cost String Chair in 1952. His Torii Stool and Circular Center Table won
the Gold Medal at the Triennale di Milano in 1957. In addition to interior and furniture design Watanabe also designed clocks and watches.
His 1972 design for the Hibiya Dai-Ichi Life Insurance Company's pole clock is recognised as one of Watanabe's major works.
