The Strumbel Clock draws upon the bright colors and gritty graphic images present in German sprayed street art. “It’s obvious that my color concept is inspired by pop art,” asserts Stefan Strumbel. “The spray can as a traditional urban art tool gave me the chance to develop the color composition in a very playful manner.”

The designer believes that spraying advances, rather than subverts, cuckoo clock fabrication. “The clocks are really original cuckoo clocks, crafted based on my concepts and realized by specialists in the Black Forest. As a final step, I pimp the clocks with the spray can.” Strumbel also inserts pop culture symbols, such as hand grenades and AK-47s, into his designs. The colorful end products turn the customary timepieces into a fun object made to comment on contemporary culture.
