PRATO

design : Yuichi Nara

PRATO means a lawn or grass in Italian. The clock index, like grass growing from the clock face in tufts, was produced using a special printing method called a flocking finish. The combination of natural plywood and its soft flocky texture produces an expressive clock. The soft color of the clock suits other fabric and furniture.
