A collaboration with artist and designer Yuri Suzuki, ‘Chimes’ is a collection of two decorative hanging bells; a windchime and a shopkeeper’s bell, each with a timbre tailored for its intended environment.
A celebration of the analogue, the ‘Chimes’ collection has been engineered to create ambient and soothing sounds with the aim of offering a daily moment of auditory delight.
The shopkeeper’s bell creates a lower tone reminiscent of the door bells found in traditional shops, from bakeries to haberdasheries. Designed to welcome customers on entering the premises, the bell’s familiar sound fosters a sense of nostalgia and warmth, while the graphic coloured shapes of the clanger and tail lend the design a striking, contemporary look. Although envisaged for retail and hospitality, the bell also makes a playful addition to homes and residential settings.
Composed of a spun brass bell and laser-cut powder coated aluminium shapes, the bell is threaded with durable Kevlar string to withstand both outdoor and indoor environments. The exterior of the bell is finished with an invisible clear-coat to give protection against outdoor conditions and comes with a discrete white bracket and brass screws for mounting.
Please note that the bell fixes onto the back of your door and requires 15cm space behind the door once open.
