ARNE JACOBSEN Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) grew up in a middle-class home that was decorated in the ornate Victorian style popular at the time. As an architect, he dedicated his career to stripping down and rethinking products and structures from a functional, minimalist perspective. Architecture, in the form of residential and public buildings was the starting point of Jacobsen’s career, but he was interested in far more than a building’s exterior. He also designed interior elements, furniture, textiles, tableware, fixtures and fittings, door handles and much more. So it was no surprise that Arne Jacobsen also designed the clocks on his buildings: Aarhus City Hall, Rødovre City Hall on Denmark’s National bank. Using these clocks as inspiration, Rosendahl Design Group collaborated with Jacobsen’s former employee, Teit Weylandt, to create a new series of wall clocks. One of Jacobsen’s table clocks has also been bought back into production.
