This is the clock that my mum had and I always kind of liked but never really loved till it had disappeared... It was designed in 1955 by Gino Valle. They are still produced in Italy by Solari. From their website:
Cifra 3 is considered one of highest expressions of synthesis between technology and design in furniture. Winner of very important prize "compasso d'oro", exposed at Museum of Modern Art in New York, it has been judged as one of most precious items of design in '900; it has been shown in an exibition of Metropolitan Museum of New York (1999-2000), dedicated to the artistic industrial production of last century.
Born in late Sixties from the cooperation between the clever hands of well-known architect Gino Valle and Solari Udine, it is still today a masterpiece of style and elegance.
