Lemnos was founded in 1947 as a brass-casting manufacturer and has been selling classic and innovative clocks since 1966. Lemnos clocks are created in collaboration with well-known Japanese designers and each clock is manufactured in Japan by highly-skilled craftspeople. The clocks combine bold design with simple beauty in lasting iconic pieces. Lemnos-branded products feature in prominent design stores across the world including The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

Yuichi Nara
The Mono Clock and the Thomson Clock available at Ten Things were designed by Tokyo-born Yuichi Nara. Yuichi studied Architecture in Japan before moving to Italy where he worked at the Murano Glass Museum, north of Venice. Today he lives in Japan where he works as a designer in the Noto Peninsula.

Riki Watanabe
Award-winning Japanese designer, Riki Watanabe, was born in Tokyo in 1911. Watanabe obtained a degree in woodworking in the 1930s and went on to establish his own design studio in 1949. He was very interested in modernist design principles and how these could be introduced to the Japanese lifestyle. Watanabe’s works of design spanned clocks, watches, furniture and interiors. Watanabe passed away in 2013 at the age of 101. We are proud to stock his Riki Clock at Ten Things.
