PACE

design : Akira Yamamoto

The PACE is an unconventional circular-frame cuckoo clock with the image of a birdhouse laid over the clock dial. Rendered in high-quality plywood and evoking the feel of a trompe-l’œil piece, the PACE is designed with a sense of fun in mind, from the cuckoo’s window placement in the 6 o’clock position to the bird figure motif of the clock hands.
