Handcrafted Designer Clocks by Lemnos
Now known for their innovative and unique range of wall and table clocks, Lemnos began life as a brass casting manufacturer in 1947. It wasn’t until 1966 when Lemnos took their first step towards clock making as the Seiko Clock Company approached the company and asked them to begin making clocks on their behalf.
By 1980 Seiko were giving Lemnos more responsibility and power and their designers began taking a part in the design and development stages of clock production, and through this Lemnos became known in its own right as a manufacturer and designer of clocks.
The clock which put Lemnos on the map is available through Contemporary Clocks and it changed the fortune of the brand. The clock in question is the unique HOLA Clock, designed by Kazuo Kawasaki and it was released onto the market in 1989. It generated huge business and plenty of success for the company with 1000s of units sold and Lemnos improved their reputation and became well-known as a clock designer and producer across Japan.
The success of the HOLA allowed Lemnos to move forward and work on many new and innovative designed. They teamed up with a wide range of renowned product designers from across Japan to develop new product lines and exceptional pieces which stand out and have a timeless, classic design feel. By teaming up with recognised designed Lemnos were quickly able to produce a large range of brand new clocks to sell. The designers they chose to work with included Kazuo Kawasaki, Riki Watanabe, Shin Azumi, Kanae Tsukamoto and Tomoko Azumi. The designers worked to create the new range of clocks and then it was announced and they were released for the public to enjoy.
Many of the clocks in the modern Lemnos range include designs by this original group of designers as well as new talent from around the world.
