LA STANZA DELLO SCIROCCO | Steel clock
Wall-mounted powder coated steel clock
Powder Coated Steel
La Stanza dello Scirocco is a range of items suitable for different rooms, such as the kitchen and the living room born out of the abstract and motionless atmosphere of a magic place: the room in large Sicilian country homes where one is forced to seek shelter from the sultriness while waiting for the scirocco to die down. It is a room without windows in which you can do nothing but ponder the wind that is undoing all sublunary things outside. The upshot is a collection of geometrically irregular items made up of small splinters of various sizes, interlaced in an unstable balance.
Sicilian architect Mario Trimarchi took inspiration from this childhood memory to design a clock. The irregular shapes of the hexagonal clock face and the surrounding tiles create spaces and generate light and shade effects that add magic and dynamism to the object. It comes in three versions: in stainless steel with mirrored finish, and painted in black or white epoxy resin.
