Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1956.
By Rosendahl.

Designer Arne Jacobsen is considered one of the grandfathers of modern Danish design. The Arne Jacobsen City Hall Alarm Clock emphasizes this designer/architect's belief in giving the same amount of attention to small industrial products as he would to a city hall. In fact, this clock was designed for the Rodovre City Hall in 1956. While the clock's aesthetics differs greatly with the building's architecture, one can see how they both celebrate the international architecture trends of the 1950's and the Functionalism movement.

Made with PMMA and ABS plastic, the Arne Jacobsen City Hall Alarm Clock resembles the original but without the patina. Likewise, this clock's black and white color scale and metal foot is undeniably a nod to his acclaimed "Ant" chair. Its snooze button and LED light activates by simply holding your hand 1 cm above the clock. The top lens is made from impact-resistant plastic (perhaps for those early risers). The time and alarm functions are easily set by removing the rear case (cover) and adjusting the dials. Though small in stature, the Arne Jacobsen City Hall Alarm Clock encapsulates weighty design principles from a designer who cared about the details.

Rosendahl

Rosendahl is a source of practical designs that make day-to-day living easier and more elegant. From hand-blown glass and unique designs to innovative accessories for the dining table and the home, to professional kitchen utensils.

Thanks to Rosendahl's product development, their distinctive, stylistically consistent designs can be found in the majority of modern homes.

Rosendahl also promotes well-known design classics. For instance, Rosendahl has taken on the distribution of Kay Bojesen's much-loved toy soldiers, the distinctive teak monkey and the timeless Grand Prix cutlery.

Rosendahl's history is also closely intertwined with Yomin Yamada's Global knives, which Erik Rosendahl introduced to Scandinavia with great success. These professional knives became a best-seller, and today they can be found in many Danish homes and professional kitchens.

Rosendahl is also renowned for its collaboration with art craftswoman Lin Utzon; some of her items include the poetic, stylistically consistent Filigran range and the sculptural Lin Utzon vase created in close collaboration with Erik Rosendahl.

Last but by no means least, Rosendahl has generated enthusiasm for its functional, classic Grand Cru range of tableware, a most attractive blend of Danish and Japanese styling.

In addition, Rosendahl works closely with designer Ole Palsby, whose designs include the aesthetic Rosendahl storage jars with their simple, clean-cut lines. The timeless look of the jars, combined with their multitude of uses, makes them classic items in many homes around the world.

Rosendahl is also famous for its ultra-minimalist Watch range, designed by award-winning Danish designer Flemming Bo Hansen, one of the few Danes to be represented at the Museum of Modern Art. The Watch range is characterised by its simple, clean lines and a harmony of black wristbands and clock faces interacting with matte steel.

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) was trained as a bricklayer and graduated from The Technical Society's school in 1924 and Copenhagen Art Academy 1927. In 1928 he received the Academy's gold medal, but prior to this, when only 23, he was awarded a silver medal at the 1925 Paris World Exhibition — the first of numerous honors that became a natural accompaniment to his artistic activities, his untiring search and his brilliant conceptions, made manifest by many successes in competitions at home and abroad.
