If you haven’t encountered the design before, the Finn Juhl Clock was originally produced for the Trusteeship Council Chamber’s interior at the UN building in 1952. So not something you would have walked past (unless you happen to have had business there). It’s a gem of a design, something that looks its age, but at the same time would happily sit in both a retro or modern interior.
The concave shape of the clock is constructed from class A certified Tectona Grandis teak from Burma. This is apparently ‘so rare’ that the clock has to be a limited edition. The detailing is in aluminium.
The clock is also smaller than the original too, around half the size. But the proportions are perfect. Architect Made got hold of the drafter who worked on the clock with Finn Juhl in the fifties to check everything was just right. That’s dedication.
The current diameter is 34cm, with a Japanese silent movement providing the power. If you want one, the price is £649.
