Coucouclock Brunhilde / Coucouclock

Coucouclock Brunhilde
Coucouclock Brunhilde

The coucouclock tranfers the product history of original Blackforest clockmakers to the present. The focus on the combination of spurce wood and concrete, of nativeness and artless elegance is clearly visible.

“Brunhilde” is produced in the Blackforest with local obtained materials. Equally the mechanical clock unit is made in this region. By the use of concrete instead of cast iron for the weights, the material input and the amount of engergy could be reduced. All components the clock is consisting of are separable, repairable and compatible. There is no need for batteries by the mechanic of the clock and no refuse before and while running.
