With the Ceramic Clocks, the first thing that catches the eye is their playful design and their shape. These table clocks have a somewhat geometric yet organic look about them that is evocative of sculptures by artists such as Constantin Brancusi or Isamu Noguchi. The clock cases are entirely made of glazed ceramics. The colours used, and the design of the clock faces in particular, leave us in no doubt as to their functional purpose.
The Ceramic Clocks were designed in the early 1950s and developed as far as the production stage. For reasons unknown, however, they never made it to the production line. Based on the original plans and prototypes, the Vitra Design Museum is now, for the first time ever, bringing these original quartz movement clocks to the market.
Porcelain, colour glazed. Hands made of sheet metal, lacquered. Highgrade quartz movement with ready-to-use rechargeable battery.
