Cuckoo clocks normally look like they belong in small cottages owned by elderly grandmothers residing in the Austrian Alps. These, however, are not your normal cuckoo clocks. Guido Zimmerman, a German artist, created a collection of Brutalist cuckoo clocks entitled “Cuckoo Blocks” that we’d love to toss on the wall in our living room, which is definitely not a living room owned by an old lady in the Black Forest. Drawing inspiration from city life, the clocks boast a distinctly more urban feel than the German and Swiss clocks of old. Unfortunately the clocks aren’t for sale, but you can view more of Zimmerman’s work at his website.  

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
