Fash­ion­able Times


The ‘Coucou-nest’ by Nadège Dell’omo was one of 24 eye-catch­ing cuckoo clocks on dis­play at the Dubai Mall sec­tion of the Dubai Watch Week. The works com­prise a col­lec­tion by pupils at Head-genève (Haute Ecole d’art et de De­sign), one of Europe’s most pres­ti­gious de­sign schools. The ex­hi­bi­tion, which is cur­rently tour­ing the globe is the re­sult of a chal­lenge to give the 400-year-old folk ob­ject a con­tem­po­rary twist while re­tain­ing its main char­ac­ter­is­tics, namely to tell a story and strike the hours with a cuckoo’s call.
