Test of time

Progetxti Twin

Not content with the ornate wall-mounted variety, Italian manufacturer Progetti set about reinventing the traditional cuckoo clock. The result is Twin, a freestanding clock with impressive eco credentials.

Made from corrugated cardboard and available in white, red, black or violet, Twin has a quartz mechanism and a photosensitive sensor that turns off the clock’s cuckoo sound (the only remnant of its original incarnation) as soon as the room is dark – making midnight wake-up calls a thing of the past. £POA. www.iprogetti.eu
