While each member of the IKO clock family is an exciting three-dimensional form they are all different in character.

  • Iris's strong retro influence is reminiscent of Detroit's era of fins & flamboyant styling inspired by spacecraft & the early jet age, when anything seemed possible.

  • Pulsar has a more restrained, sculptural style in which the pure, wave-like form of the face contrasts with the sharp hour markers cutting through it & accentuating its profile.

  • IkoStar has an exuberant, funky character drawing inspiration from organic themes but also blended with geometric forms, found in its spoked hub. A post-modern flower!

”For so many objects found in the home there is an abundance of choice but at the same time a scarcity of engaging, original designs at a reasonable price. IKO's aim is to create functional products that also have a lasting appeal as beautiful three dimensional forms."
