Originally designed in 1965 by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni for the "La Casa Abitata" exhibition at the Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, the Alessi Firenze Wall Clock wasn't produced by Alessi until 1996. With its petite, round form and oversized Roman numerals, Firenze remains an eternal timekeeping classic, and is now available in new, eye-catching colors.
Alessi, known as the Italian design factory, has manufactured household products since 1921. The stylish and fun items offered are the result of contemporary partnerships with some of the world's best designers of unique and modern home accessories.
The Firenze Wall Clock is available with the following:
- Made of ABS plastic
- Quartz movement
- Uses one AA battery (included)
- Designed by Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1996 (1965)
White and Red
- Any mechanical clock is expected to make some sort of ticking sound as the hands move. However, there is only potential for this ticking to be really audible and continual if there is a second hand. Otherwise, the clock will be basically silent or with muffled clicks limited to the movement of the minute hand.
