Progetti has announced the launch of a new collection of clocks for kids, born from the collaboration with Caecilie and Virginia Hechtel. Their studio Hans&Greta was the perfect choice for the new range as their speciality is creating items connected to the world of fairytales. The collection includes three clocks inspired by popular children fairytales: Alice, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood.
The clocks convey a highly emotional image of the underlying theme of fairy tales but with a modern interpretation. Their artwork recalls a mixture of classic and traditional fairy tales with a touch of ‘manga’ style of drawing with large eyes, simple shapes, important symbols drawn out of proportion and vivid colours.
The designers went even further and ‘brought’ the characters to life by making their skirts move like a pendulum to the passing time.
Alice, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood are ideal for children’s bedrooms and for this purpose a small ‘playful’ feature has been added, each clock has magnetic hands that can be playfully adjusted to any position as you please.
