Table Clocks by Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen had designed a house for H.J. Hansen, who was director of Lauritz Knudsen. Hansen was so enthusiastic about Jacobsen that he encouraged him to draw a clock back in 1939. The clock, which Arne Jacobsen designed back in 1939, was presented at the Spring Exhibition at Charlottenborg. It was the first of a total of four courses from Arne Jacobsen's hand.

Arne Jacobsen's table clock is updated with both alarm, snooze function, and light, which is triggered by an invisible sensor at the top of the clock. A very beautiful, simple, and classic alarm clock that adorns every home.

ARNE JACOBSEN - TIMELESS DESIGN

The genius that made Danish design world known. Arne Jacobsen is undoubtedly one of Denmark's most prominent architects and is internationally recognized for his marvelous buildings and design - also including his clocks and watches. Arne Jacobsen's architecture is still admired internationally and many of his products are still being produced.


Arne Jacobsen's design caused a stir everywhere and the magic is that it is still does so. Good design is characterized by continuous fascination as time goes by. The clocks and watches have now been recreated entirely faithful to Arne Jacobsen's original drawings. The unique watches were created over a long, incredibly prolific and artistically unique career as an architect and designer.

Bankers

In 1961, Arne Jacobsen won the competition to design the new National Bank of Denmark and the building was completed in 1978 – 7 years after his death. The Bankers clock is designed in 1971 and hangs proudly displayed on the original bank hall wall.
The bank hall contains peartree panels, contrasting the entry hall in Norwegian marble, which stretches like a cathedral almost 20 meters up throughout the six stories.

The Danish National Bank is widely considered one of Arne Jacobsen's masterpieces.

Roman

In 1942 the City Hall of Århus in Denmark was unveiled. Arne Jacobsen designed the building together with Erik Møller, and the original design was without a tower.
A tower has no functionality and therefore does not fit into the design philosophy of Arne Jacobsen. But after multiple protests, the two architects saw no other option but to add a 60-meter tall tower.

Fortunately, it was because of this tower that we got the beautiful clock, Roman.

Station

In the middle of the 30s, a young Arne Jacobsen designed a house for H. J. Hansen which was the director of Lauritz Knudsen (a large well-known company in the electrical industry). The director spotted the talent in Arne Jacobsen and asked him to design a clock for his new home. Arne Jacobsen accepted the challenge and drew an alarm clock, which was his first industrial product design.

The clock was presented at the spring fair in Charlottenborg, Copenhagen 1939, and is the first industrial product design of Arne Jacobsen. Early in his career, simplicity and design lines were the characterizations of Arne Jacobsen's design.
