Arne Jacobsen City Hall Wall Clock
Chromed aluminum, flat crystal, quartz movement
Made in Denmark by Rosendahl
Rosendahl has acquired the rights to recreate and manufacture 3 Arne Jacobsen wall clocks, Banker’s Clock, City Hall and Roman. Arne Jacobsen created Banker’s Clock when he designed the building for Denmark’s National bank in 1971, while Roman was designed for Aarhus City Hall in 1942, and City Hall for Rodovre City Hall in 1956.
To ensure the clocks are recreated entirely in accordance with and true to the style and spirit of Arne Jacobsen, the Rosendahl design company has initiated close collaboration with the architect and designer Teit Weylandt, who for many years directed product development at Arne Jacobsen’s studio and later at Dissing + Weitling.
Arne Jacobsen (11 Feb. 1902 - 24 March 1971) is one of the most influential Danish architects and designers of the 20th century. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen, where he was also a professor of architecture for a long period. Arne Jacobsen put his modernist stamp on architecture and design for more than 50 years - not only in Denmark but also internationally. He embodies the balancing act of elite creator and household name.
