Max Bill Wall Clock
Description
The concept of time was fascinating to Max Bill, a renowned 20th century Swiss architect and designer. Elegantly simple, this clock has a polished aluminum case, white dial, mineral glass, chromed-steel hands, and a German quartz movement. One AA battery included.
Why We Chose This
Max Bill, a designer represented in MoMA’s collection, was a pioneering architect, painter, sculptor and product designer who is credited with leading Switzerland into the age of modernism. His training at the Bauhaus, in the late 1920s, is manifested in the austere geometric form of this Table Clock, a design from 1958. The piece’s wooden case is based on the optical square, the proportions of which Max Bill consistently followed in his designs.
