Arne Jacobsen Romer Alarm ClockPrice: $129.00
Design by Arne Jacobsen, 1942.
Internationally acclaimed designer and architect, Arne Jacobsen was an expert at seeing the whole picture. His Arne Jacobsen Romer Alarm Clock illustrates this designer's contribution to the Functionalism movement and his mastership of classic graphic art. When designing the Aarhus City Hall in Aarhus, Denmark, Jacobsen was struck by inspiration for this clock design. One can see how this elegant clock echoes back the same modern sentiment used to draft the Aarhus City Hall.
Made with PMMA and ABS plastic, the Arne Jacobsen Romer Alarm Clock looks exactly like the original but without the patina. The clock's Roman numerals are easily distinguishable which makes checking them with one eye open in the morning easy. Also, its snooze button and LED light activate 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. Wake up to a modern classic with the AJ Table Clock Romer with Alarm.

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 honours 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.View other products by Arne Jacobsen
