Description

Arne Jacobsen's AJ Roman wall clock is based on the giant clock that Jacobsen designed in the 1940s for the tower of Aarhus City Hall.  Finished with Roman numerals, the elegant timepiece features classic yet reduced graphics and an aluminum case that gives the clock a floating appearance when mounted on the wall.

Architect and designer Arne Jacobsen is predominantly known as a pioneer of Danish modernism, and the classic style of the AJ Roman clock might seem uncharacteristic of him – but in fact, Jacobsen created several clock faces with Roman numerals around the same time. Drawings and watercolors depicting clocks and clock towers have been found in Jacobsen's archives, many of which were sketched during his travels in France and Italy.

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) is the most celebrated post-war Danish designer and architect. He graduated from the School of Applied Arts in 1924 and from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied architecture, in 1927. Arne Jacobsen worked actively both as an architect and as a designer and received many prestigious awards for his designs, including C. F. Hansen Medal and the Grand Prix of Milan XI Triennale.

Jacobsen’s most famous project was the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen (1956-1960), for which he designed every detail from textiles and lamps to cutlery and furniture. The AJ lamps, designed for the Royal Hotel and manufactured by Louis Poulsen, are a fine example of his streamlined and elegant style. The cutlery designed for the Royal Hotel and produced by Georg Jensen, represents a stylish design that is still today much praised. Also, the famous Egg and Swan chairs were designed for the Royal Hotel. As often happened with Arne Jacobsen’s designs, they were initially realized for a certain project and only later put into serial production – the same happened for the AJ lamps, the cutlery and the furniture he designed for the hotel. Royal Hotel was an extremely important project for Jacobsen because he could finally put his theories of integrated design and architecture into practice.

Jacobsen is well-known also for the Cylinda Line range, designed for Stelton in 1967. Since the very beginning, Cylinda Line has been an undisputed icon of Scandinavian design and today the range is part of numerous permanent collections in design museums all over the world.
