Contemporary Wall Clocks
A modern wall clock is more than a time display. It is also a
living accessory, an art object or a design element. It can
underline or emphasize the selected living style or make a
statement. It can be a splash of color in a simple environment
or it can blend in harmoniously. Modern wall clocks are often
made of wood, glass or metal. Selected materials ensure a
Modern style: frameless timekeepers in a clean metallic look
In the modern furnishing style, your living room is characterized by clear
lines and cool colors. Here you can relax from the leather sofa and enjoy the
view of an extravagant wall clock that works without a frame, for example as
a metallic XXL clock in the form of a sun with sunbeams as a clock hand. Do you
prefer it subtle? A minimalist wall clock on a slate plate with gold-colored
pointers looks good above a simple TV sideboard.
Tip: Incidentally, gold or white numbers on a dark background are easier to
read than black numbers on white from a greater distance.

||Ball wall clock
According to legend, the Ball Clock is the result of a
heavily drunk evening round with colleagues in 1948:
When cleaning up the next morning, George Nelson found a
sketch of a wall clock along with other scribbles on a
piece of drawing paper. Since none of his friends can
remember who made the drawing, George Nelson refined and
completed the design of the wall clock.
George Nelson designed the wall clock with its
typical spherical wreath on individual wooden sticks in
different colors as early as 1948: With this Vitra Ball
Clock, colored, lacquered wooden spheres, which are
arranged in a circle around the central,
battery-operated clockwork, symbolize the usual clock
marks such as numerals, for example. The metal,
arrow-shaped hands are held in a charming black, yellow
or gray color.
The Vitra clocks by George Nelson, with their variety
of materials and sculptural forms, embody the lifestyle
of the modern, progressive 1950s. Vitra offers this
George Nelson design, which is over 60 years old, with a
modern quartz movement (incl. 1.5 V battery), as the
Ball Clock is still a refreshing alternative to
||Eye clock wall clock
George Nelson's original design from 1957 was smaller,
but the scale is exactly right for this replica by Vitra.
With its new size and thanks to the exquisite mix of
materials, this wall-mounted clock now has an impressive
object character: the number indices become eyelids and
the "pupil" in its pointer circle clearly bears
The Eye Clock by George Nelson is one of the most
modern and extraordinary wall clocks that Vitra offers.
George Nelson designed the wall clock in the spirit of
the 50s and with the goal of the time to bring modern
design directly into American homes. Today the Swiss
manufacturer Vitra has these unique designs ready. In
his design, George Nelson also made sure that the Eye
Clock wall clock can be easily attached to the wall and
only a standard AA battery (incl.) Is required for the
||Ribbonwood wall clock
Wooden but not at all stiff: Michelle Ivankovic stylized
a watch-shaped margarite blossom for the Canadian brand.
Six strips of beech plywood, perfectly crafted in the
shape of a loop, create an airy dial, so that the twelve
clock marks indicate the time with an unusually wide but
striking effect. And the battery-operated clockwork is
hidden under the multi-covered center point. Michelle
Ivankovic first developed her watch in metal strips, but
Umbra successfully changed her mind to use beech wood,
which was bent under steam, which gives the watch more
body and thus makes a more impression. Because the
Ribbonwood wall clock has a total diameter of half a
||Modern wooden wall
clock made of solid wood
The latest model is the
perfect symbiosis between modernity and nature. Between
purism and extravagance. Between functionality and
aesthetics. Solidly built from natural, oiled oak.
Striking through the structure and the design. Solid due
to the depth of 4 cm.
Solid is more than a wall clock. It is a piece of
real nature for your home. A homage to the preciousness
of time. Of transience.
The simple design made of solid oak is only
interrupted by the precisely milled minute and hour
lines. The focus is on the wood.
The fine structure. Each model is unique. Just like
every tree is unique. The hands are available in 3
different tones. All tones are deliberately chosen
naturally. Nuances from nature. Harmoniously matched to
the color of the woods. On the functional side, Junghans
movements - made in Germany - offer maximum convenience.
They are noiseless and ensure that absolutely no
annoying ticking can be heard.
