The architectural AJ Roman table clock with alarm, which is again launched by Rosendahl Timepieces now, emerged in 1939 by Arne Jacobsen, who was responsible for the construction of the house of the manager of the electrical devices manufacturer Lauritz Knudsen.
One typical characteristic for the Arne Jacobsen design is that it is minimalistic as well as architectural at the same time. At the same time it was embossed by the Lauritz Knudsen industrial approach of shaping: with plastic as a new magical material of that time.
After it was forgotten for many years, the AJ Roman table clock with alarm celebrated a strong comeback with the re-interpretation of the Arne Jacobsen collection by Rosendahl now. It is a clock as well as an efficient alarm because of the actualized functions, such as snooze and a light sensor, despite that many people might think of the Roman table clock as a design piece. The table clock by Rosendahl suite everywhere in modern homes with an obvious inspiration of the chairs Ant and Series 7 with its graphic black/white colours scale and the elegant metal foot: In the bedroom, in the living room, in the kitchen, on the shelf and not at last in the office is where the AJ Roman table clock means an ultimate design gadget for enthusiasts.
The re-edition of the AJ table clock is made of plastic and scratch resistant artificial glass. A movement sensor activates the light on the dial with a hand-wink. The snooze function of the AJ Roman table clock repeats up to five times in an interval of ten minutes. The Rosendahl clock is battery powered and it needs two AA batteries.
As well as the wall and wrist watches by Arne Jacobsen, the AJ Roman table clokc with alarm is a re-design by Rosendahl Timepieces respecting the original designs by Arne Jacobsen and without compromising regarding the high demands he had of quality and the whole concept.
