Description

Vitra's Ceramic Clocks combine geometric and organic shapes in a playful and sculptural way, evoking associations with three-dimensional works by artists like Constantin Brancusi or Isamu Noguchi. For unknown reasons, the Ceramic Clocks were never produced in series, though designed and developed in full detail in the early 1950s.
