Arne Jacobsen reproduction clock

Description

A modern recreation of Arne Jacobsen's table clock (refer AIBDC : 008680), made in ABS and released by the Rosendahl Design Group, who now own the rights to the original design. Arne Jacobsen designed the clock for the home he had also designed for H. J. Hansen, the director of Lauritz Knudsen. It was presented at the spring fair in Charlottenborg, Copenhagen in 1939 and LK began manufacturing the clock that same year with a synchronous motor, stopping production in 1948-49. E. Norgaard took over production of the LK clocks under the name ENK (E.Norgaard, Kobanhavn) in the 1950s, releasing the clock with both its originally designed metal base and a new bakelite version. Originally powered by mains electricity, this modern example is battery powered and includes a light and alarm function. It is injection moulded in acrylonitrile butadiene styrene with an acrylic (polymethyl methacrylate) cover over the face and a chrome base.
