Dinn Clock by Alessandro Zambelli


Specially designed for Diamantini&Domeniconi – Dinn clock is the latest project by Alessandro Zambelli. The new furniture accessory created by the designer shows its minimalist nature and uncovers a precious and ‘dinging’ heart’.

The stark, round face takes bare essentials almost to an extreme. The material is MDF and comes in white and light oak. Within the circle is one bright, attention-grabbing spark of originality. A small, unexpected bell contrasts brassily with the painted face of a timepiece. This precious detail stands out as the clock’s ‘dinging’ heart. The visual impression made by the hands, in anthracite-coloured aluminium, is equally powerful. Clearly they are key features of its idiosyncratic, passing strike mechanism. In fact the minute hand terminates in a tiny hammer which nudges the clapper of the bell hourly, ‘on the dot.’ The clapper swings. It rings a bell. DINN.

A preview of DINN, the clock with the Campanella bell, can be seen at Maison et Objet (Hall 8, Stand A33-B34), the exhibition rendezvous in Paris from 5 to 9 September.
