A timepiece like architecture; mantle clock. The completely handmade, small and homely wooden architecture of the mantel clock designed by Michael Graves fascinates through its varied structural details. When designing this pendulum clock, Michael Graves referred back to the long tradition of miniature architecture.

„This table clock was manufactured from 1988 to 1999 and then had to be retired due to manufacturing issues. It is an excellent example of the creative peak of Micheal Graves’s post-modern talent, who, with tongue in cheek, refers to the Biedermeier style he highly praised.”
