Wall clock in glossy copper.
Dimensions: 26 x 4 cm
Turi, copper wall clock. Memories hark back to Italian kitchens of yesteryear, where pots and pans hang on the walls, as to show off the culinary skills of the hostess. Today, kitchens are being emptied out, becoming minimal; the only solid and ever-present reference remains the passing of time… The contemporary design of Turi is accented by soft shapes that enhance both traditional material and craftsmanship.
The names for all of Internoitaliano’s objects are a tribute to minor Italians towns and villages, those that are rarely celebrated, but nonetheless are just as real and representative of a suffused and authentic national identity. Turi is a town and comune in the Metropolitan City of Bari, Puglia.
Born in 1982 in Bari, since 2008 he lives and works in Milan.

In 2010 he has won the Design competition Premio Ghislieri, taking care of all the subsequent editions since then.

In 2013, he has won the design contest with the project Controstampo for Cristalplant, which has been inserted in the Falper’s catalogue in 2014. In the same year, with Alessandro Stabile, he worked as art director for the new kitchen brand Artifex.
