The Jonas Damon Story

Why We Love Jonas Damon
Damon's modern clocks and accessories seem to approach the human in terms of the object's function. If the accessory is meant to be held, it's made of wood, attractive and soft to the touch. If the object is meant to get you out of bed in the morning, it's made of straight-laced, no-nonsense plastic. If it's used for both entertainment AND professional work, it's a happy blend of both materials.
Noteworthy Products by Jonas Damon
