Despite of the fact that there are multiple possibilities of reading the time – at the computer, on the smartphone or a tablet – the wall clock is still one of the most favorite home accessories in modern furnishings. This is especially seen with the famous classic pieces by Arne Jacobsen, such as the Station wall clock, with the unmistakable retro aesthetics, filling a naked wall with expressive design only adding a nail.
The double function as practical timer and artwork at the same time inspired Rosendahl Timepieces to include the Arne Jacobsen Station wall clock of 1941 with an extremely elegant external ring of black aluminium now, into the assembly of the manufacturer.
The Station, which was initially created by Arne Jacobsen for the manufacturer of electric devices LK, was different to other Rosendahl AJ wall clocks because of the Arabic numbers that are noticeable on the dial and that mark the passing time with their distinctive pointers in black and white.
The graphic design of the Rosendahl Timepieces AJ Station wall clock clearly refers to the German Bauhaus as well as many other Arne Jacobsen works. The architectural beauty of the clock is emphasized by another design characteristic: An exterior ring out of black aluminium encloses the single pieces of the wall clock and it is therewith the forerunner of the City Hall clock, which Arne Jacobsen designed with a similar type of an aluminium ring in 1956.
