1950s FJ Clock (Teak Wood) by Finn Juhl

1950s FJ Clock (Teak Wood) by Finn Juhl

Danish Mid Century Wooden Wall Clock in a Scandinavian Modern Style by Finn Juhl for Architectmade on sale at Stardust for $995.00. Finn Juhl was born in 1912. He graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He is one of the most acclaimed Danish architects from the 1950’s. He is known for his bold, sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Although Finn Juhl was never a skilled craftsman like many of his colleagues in the 1950’s and 60’s, he made up for it in vision. His saying was “One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but one can ruin quite a lot of happi- ness with bad ones,” which summarizes the mind of Finn Juhl and his aesthetic thinking.

The FJ Clock was originally designed as a part of the interior of the Trustee- ship Council in the UN building in New York in 1950 - One of Finn Juhl’s most famous and internationally recognized interior design projects. The FJ Clock is still hanging at the top right-hand side in the building facing the participants in meetings in the chamber like a sundial. The FJ Clock by ARCHITECTMADE is half the size of the clock in the UN building to fit into modern homes.

The FJ Clock captures the essence of Finn Juhl’s aesthetic design, with its circular shape that complements the natural qualities of the teak wood, and the aluminium dial that captures his flair for clever minimalism.

How to take care of your FJ Clock: The clock is made in the highest quality certified teak wood and treated with teak oil. As with any other wood products the wood can dry out. To maintain the clock, use a soft sponge or cloth with mild soapy water. Once the clock is dry, apply the teak oil.

· Designed for the Trusteeship Council in the UN building in New York in 1950. · Numbered and signed in the back. · Made in original and certified Tectona Grandis teak wood. · Hands and dials made in polished aluminium. · Japanese clock movement

Superloon appears as an impressive flat disc of light using edge-lit LED technology, placed on a tripod and rotating through 360 degrees. Ideal as ambient light or a reading lamp, the intensity and colour temperature of the Superloon can be controlled using the optical sensor located on one of the legs of the tripod base. The change in colour temperature through the dimming range is achieved through the 'Warm Tone Dimming'. Superloon will be available in black, white or chrome finishing.

Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the Basel Chair, the Place Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
