Arne Jacobsen was a master of all disciplines of design: architecture, furniture design, lamps, cutlery, textiles, clocks...
Since 2009, Timepieces Rosendahl Copenhagen has been successfully producing Arne Jacobsen's wall clocks and watches, and is now expanding the collection with a classic "table clock" in five different designs. All of them have the unique combination of functional product and design classic that has given Arne Jacobsen's clocks their cult status today.
Arne Jacobsen is synonymous with internationally acclaimed design icons such as "The Egg" and "The Swan", and is famous for his numerous beautiful architectural works for both private and commercial use. With his multi-talented design skills, he could offer complete design solutions and in this way some of his most famous designs were created: "The Ant" and "Seven" chairs for Novo's headquarters, the "Bankers" wall clock for Denmark's National bank and the "Table Clock".
Industrial Functional Design
The architectural table clock was created by Arne Jacobsen in connection with the construction of a building for the managing director of electrical goods manufacturer Lauritz Knudsen in 1939. Typically Arne Jacobsen, the design is both architectural and minimalist, but at the same time is influenced by Lauritz Knudsen's industrial access to molding with plastic, which was the new wonder material at that time.
