Say the word cuckoo clock to anyone and the image that pops into their heads is probably the same image that has popped into millions of heads before, ie a traditional styled Swiss chalet with a cuckoo bird that pops out every hour. So I guess when Alexandre Gaillard and Martino D’Esposito heard the same word, a different picture formed in their mechanic brains, and the Swiss Koo cuckoo clocks were born.
Alexandre and Martino, two Swiss designers and precision mechanics, decided to join forces and re-design their beloved Swiss cuckoo clock. Sticking to the same passion and quality that has gone into the making of decades of cuckoo clocks before them, the duo have added a slight modern twist to their product.
Handmade and with no interest in mass production, it’s clear to see the respect they had in honouring this iconic object that is part of every Swiss persons cultural heritage.
The clocks are durable and made from quality products that are produced locally. They contain no plastic, glue or nails, with some of the moving parts coming form Germany. These chic and kitsch clocks, add a slight offbeat humor and originality to any interior, with their picturesque and modern design paying homage to the beautiful Swiss Folklore.
So if you’ve always wanted to own a cuckoo clock, why not check out some of the wonderful design on their website Swiss Koo, and see why their products are referred to as “the other Swiss cuckoo clock“!
