Case and movement
A sleek designed, red painted wooden longcase clock by the designer Shigeru Uchida, made in Italy by Morphs Acerbic International. This design is named after Morris Adjmi, a partner of the Italian architect Aldo Rossi, who worked with Shigeru Uchida for Hotel II Palazzo in Fukuoka in Japan. The horizontally ribbed wooden clock, which has four long legs, is made of one piece, which is painted red. The movement is situated in the upper square part and has a quartz movement. The white dial has an chapter ring with Arabic numerals, five-minute and minute divisions. The time is indicated by a pair of sleekly designed black hands, the hour hand being heavier in design. On the dial the name MORPHOS made in Italy. The whole is the pinnacle of modern design.
