Urban Building Cuckoo Clocks

The 'Cuckoo Block' Clock Gives a Cheeky Update to the Classic Design

The 'Cuckoo Block' clock is a cheekily designed decor piece that takes a modern approach to the classic item with a focus on urban characteristics.

Designed to look like an apartment building rather than a quaint cottage, the clock has been created in a number of different styles that all draw inspiration from the urban landscape. This includes a number of Brutalist and Bauhaus architectural nods that has been created with the utmost attention to detail for a truly modern take on a classic decor design.

The 'Cuckoo Block' clocks are the design work of Guido Zimmermann and create a new kind of modern aesthetic that draws inspiration from the existing landscape of our cities for something that's shocking yet familiar to many.
