Clocks

The need to measure the passage of time always and in every context made clocks an indispensable part of everyday life. The common denominator of watches from every era is their functionality and versatility above all else, from the first version of a wristwatch to the most up-to-date and modern table or wall clocks. Whether at home, in a bar-restaurant or in the office, watches have the power to draw attention and attract countless glances, which is why several designers have dedicated time to designing them over the years. Nowadays, the choice of a watch is now an integral part of the design of any interior, as is designer furniture more often referred to as such. It has the power to feel its absence, which makes it absolutely essential.

The history and evolution of watches

Watches, like all products in the design world, are born out of need: in this case, the pretext was to measure time by quantifying its passage. At first, burning a candle might have been enough to make you realize that time was up, but that wasn't enough. The turning point was the introduction of the shield concept. The first one used probably dates back to the time of sundials: thanks to its introduction, it was finally possible to reflect not only the notion of the passage of time in black and white, but above all the concept of time and the moments that follow each other. Watches with mechanical operation and introduction of hands will have to wait until the Middle Ages, to the most modern digital watches.

The design of the watches, between beauty and functionality

Table clocks, thanks to their much smaller dimensions, are ideal in office environments or as bedside alarm clocks: real analogue or digital decorations that, thanks to the different materials, fit well in the context in which they are placed. Wooden clocks are certainly more common in homes than those with a metal frame, both because of their durability and, above all, their aesthetic versatility. They are also available in less common materials such as leather, marble and cardboard, incl. for much more niche products.

Every room has its own clock

One thing's for sure: whether it's a wall clock or a table clock, every room in the house must have its own own clock. In bedrooms, you will often see traditional digital alarm clocks on bedside tables or drawers, which can be seen more clearly at night due to the considerable brightness of their numbers. Their natural evolution are projection clocks that have an LCD screen to display the time and at the same time allow projection on the wall or ceiling. The latter are watches that express their maximum functionality in dark hours, which is why they are rarely seen in rooms that do not belong to the sleeping area of ​​the house. This is not the case with designer watches for daytime use: in this case, personal taste, available space and surrounding furniture are factors that determine the final choice.

Decorate with watches

Clocks, as decorative items, they are suitable for decorating rooms such as living rooms, contract areas or offices, bedrooms for adults and children. Generally, wall clocks are used for most of these applications, precisely because they are larger, more decorative, original, and often resemble paintings or wall sculptures. For more classical environments, pendulum clocks are the perfect choice: they are often revisions of objects from the past, icons of technology already obsolete with the appearance of first the quartz movement and then the atomic clock, but which keep the artistic and historical value intact.

< h3> Clocks for a children's room

If we think about a clock in the bedroom, it is impossible not to think about a colorful, funny model that resembles characters from a fairy tale or a small animal that is the protagonist of a cartoon. Children's clocks are easy to read, intuitive and fun. They give the room liveliness, color, liveliness and are real wall decorations that perform various functions, including the most educational of all, which involves teaching children to read time, a gentle step in the development of a teenager who becomes familiar with the concept of the passage of time.
