Ari Kanerva’s Tiuku Clock is a subtle and minimal take on the traditional grandfather style. His work is a dedication to minimalist details and to tirelessly researching functionality and ergonomics. His ethos is to make my design simple and functional, yet play with forms. There is a clear delineation from the formal and a strong divergence into design that emanates clarity of purposeful design. Function being key.
Measuring 190cms in height, the Tiuku Clock transforms the conventional structure of the grandfather clock into the ideal urban representation of utility and consistency. Comprised of powder-coated sheet steel, it is available in four colour variations where the piece requires that it is mounted to the wall, but still remains in a subtle leaning-type stance.
Born in Finland, with a background in Spatial and Furniture Design from the University of Art and Design Helsinki, Kanerva established his own design studio in 2010. His main focus is furniture and product design and he also assists companies with product design. The Tiuku Clock is just one of his many beautiful love children.
