The "Pirondini Italia" design company was originally founded in 1978 by brothers Donatella, Ambrogio and Giovanni Pirondini under the name of "Arti e Mestieri" (Arts and Crafts).
Initially the company specialised in the manufacture of boxes and containers for local food companies in the region of Valtellina, in the heart of the Italian Alps. However, after guidance from Ambrogio's brother Giovanni, who had studied architecture at the Milan Polytechnic, the company soon began producing home accessories and furnishings under the brandname "Pirondini Italia".
Today the company specialises in modern wall & cuckoo clocks and modern children's cuckoo clocks along with their modern home compliments. Their revival of ancient inlay techniques and their choice of rustic materials, embodied in unique, playful and visually striking designs has propelled "Pirondini Italia" to become one of the leading modern cuckoo clock and home accessory designers/manufacturers in Europe, selling not only within the continent but worldwide.
All of their designs are uniquely Pirondini however, as of 1995, the company has sought creative direction from collaborations with well-known Italian artists and designers, including Riccardo Dalisi, Emilio Tadini, Andrea Branzi, Luca Scacchetti, Emanuele Luzzati. The companies driving force is to merge perfect craftsmanship with modern design aesthetics and creativity to provide long-lasting objects for national and international markets.
All Pirondini products are skill-fully crafted in the Pirondini workshop, which to this day resides in Valtellina, with traditional tools such as lathes for hand work as well as the various modern equipment for mass production which allows them to work in any way with any type of wood. Their precious woods are sourced from Italian and European sources and include several types of burr wood which further enhance the rustic appeal of their functional everyday home items.
The company is present in various exhibitions such as Macef of Milan, the Salone del Mobile in Milan-Additional furniture and Abitare il Tempo in Verona. Cuckoo Collections hopes you enjoy our selection of "Pirondini Italia" products.
