#Architects  #KasperRønn and #JonasBjerre-Poulsen created the company @normarchitects with the aim to focus on quality, durability and timelessness.  The #Norm #TumblerAlarmClock is a contemporary interpretation of the traditional #alarmclock, with a playful twist.  When the alarm goes off, instead of fiddling with a button, you simply turn the clock upside down to make it stop.  The brushed #brass #clock has been cleverly designed to hold its position on the rounded base without falling or…

Her most famous design being the eye clock.  The #SpindleClock was designed in #1957, was first released as model 2239. The clock features solid…

The #Polygon clock is one of more than 150 #clock designs created by the #GeorgeNelson and Associates for the #HowardMillerClockCompany.  Most sources attribute this clock to George Nelson (as the owner of the studio), however the George Nelson Foundation correctly identifies the original designer as #IrvingHarper.  Many #modern #american clocks were created by Harper, who was tasked to create upwards of 8 clock designs per year. He enjoyed creating clocks that were #sculptural in form "To…

The #WalterWayle II #wallclock created by #french #designer #PhilippeStarck is a truly unique piece.  The #clock doesn't have a face or numbers, but instead relies on the position of the hands to tell the #time.  It's  #sculptural nature means that on first view, many people don't realise it is a clock at all... only after time has passed is it's true nature revealed.  The thermoplastic resin arms are shaped like wings or propellors. #Starck has been quiet on the inspiration behind the…

#Australian #designer #AbiAlice studied fine #arts and #sculpture, with a strong focus on #geometric #shapes and colour. She prefers a hands on approach to #design, creating prototypes by hand rather than using computer renderings.  Her prototype of the #DottyClock was created in paper and cardboard, using #circular stationary stickers as the inspiration for the #minimalistic #dots.  The finalised #wallclock released in #2016, is made from epoxyresin-coated steel so that it will last for…

The #FlockofButterflies or model #2226 #clock is one of more than 150 #clocks designed by #GeorgeNelson associates between 1949 and 1980.  All their clock designs were manufactured through the Howard Miller Clock Company.  Whilst this clock's #design is attributed to George Nelson himself (as was company policy), the true #designer behind it was likely #IrvingHarper, #DonChadwick or #JohnPile all of whom worked for #Nelson during that period.

When #ArneJacobsen designed the #CityHallClock for #Rødovre Town Hall in #1956, he didn't know he was creating a #Danish #design #icon.  One which would be so wide spread, so copied and imitated, that it's almost become the #archetype for what a #clock looks like.  When great design has become this common place, we sometimes grow blind to it.  But the #classics always bounce back no matter what momentary trends become fashionable.  This #timeless #time telling piece is still made in…

In #2014 #designer @Piet_Hein_Eek collaborated with #LEFFAmsterdam to create a series of designs that mirrored the #dutch design tradition - objects that are simple in #form, yet clever and practical in execution.  The #TubeClock is created with #extrusion techniques, where metal is forced through a mould to create the solid body and number ridges on the face of the #clock.  As the clock is only 2 inches wide, it can be used as an ornament on your desk, or mounted into a wooden block or…
