Diamantini & Domeniconi
The Diamantini & Domeniconi Story
Diamantini & Domeniconi, popularly known as D & D, was founded in 1965 as a designer and producer of home furnishings and accessories. The most popular of these home accessories has come to be, by far, the D & D line of modern wall clocks and table clocks. In order to expand their range of clocks and keep their designs modern and fresh, D & D has developed relationships with independent designers both in their native land of Italy and around the world. This wide-spread collaboration has resulted in a similarly wide-spread array of contemporary timepieces.
Why We Love Diamantini & Domeniconi
Diamantini & Domeniconi clocks are perhaps best described as seriously playful. The eye-catching designs are colorful and boldly shaped, both ironic and iconic. With their profusion of unexpected details, what you can expect is that every clock has come from a tongue-in-cheek design concept. From there, exceptional Italian craftsmanship allows D & D to break the rules of traditional clock-making while still ensuring a completely functional, high-quality product. The resulting clocks are verifiable works of art, ones that will only grow in value and sentimental attachment.
A Fun Fact About Diamantini & Domeniconi
This maker of contemporary clocks and accessories is based in the unlikely location of Fossombrone in the Marche region of Italy (east coast, near the top of the boot). It's a locale better known for its abundant antiquities, including buildings, statues and buildings dating back to the 1st century.
Noteworthy Products by Diamantini & Domeniconi
Diamantini & Domeniconi are best known for their ultra-modern take on the traditional cuckoo clock. Their line of Cucu Cuckoo Clocks recreates the intricate form of a Black Forest cuckoo clock with two-dimensional silhouettes precisely cut out of single sheets of metal or wood veneer (and available with or without the cuckoo-calling bird). The first clocks in the collection were originally designed for D & D by Pascal Tarabay in 2005, and immediately elevated the cuckoo clock to the position of modern design icon.
