Designer Raffaele Darra gives the traditional cuckoo clock a bold contemporary makeover. He uses the term arcoiris— rainbow, in Portuguese— to describe its striped look. The one characteristic Darra’s creation shares with the classic Black Forest cuckoo clocks of the 18th century is the material: both are made of wood. Darra’s Striped Cuckoo Clock is hand-finished with lacquered resin stripes.

The little white cuckoo bird with the red beak pops out every hour, but its movement is controlled by a light sensor, which insures that it won’t disturb your sleep at night. Clock includes on/off switch and volume control, and the back of the clock has a hole for easy wall hanging. Instructions are included. Takes two D batteries, which are not included. Each clock is unique so the stripes will vary slightly.
