THE DANISH NATIONAL BANK
In 1942 the City Hall of Århus in Denmark was unveiled. Arne Jacobsen designed the building together with Erik Møller, and the original design was without a tower.
A tower has no functionality and therefore does not fit into the design philosophy of Arne Jacobsen. But after multiple protests, the two architects saw no other option but to add a 60-meter tall tower.
Fortunately, it was because of this tower that we got the beautiful clock, Roman.
In the middle of the 30s, a young Arne Jacobsen designed a house for H. J. Hansen which was the director of Lauritz Knudsen (a large well-known company in the electrical industry). The director spotted the talent in Arne Jacobsen and asked him to design a clock for his new home. Arne Jacobsen accepted the challenge and drew an alarm clock, which was his first industrial product design.
The clock was presented at the spring fair in Charlottenborg, Copenhagen 1939, and is the first industrial product design of Arne Jacobsen. Early in his career, simplicity and design lines were the characterizations of Arne Jacobsen's design.
Rødovre City Hall in Denmark is one of Arne Jacobsen's most complete designs, inspired by the international tendencies of the time. Arne Jacobsen designed every aspect of the City Hall, all the way down to the clocks on the walls and the furniture of his own famous design.
The CITY HALL clock exhibits Arne Jacobsen's uncompromising approach to design and architecture. With its curved glass and precise graphics, it is a study of timeless simplicity and elegance.
