Design Max Bill, 1956. Aluminum, mineral glass, quartz movement. Made in Germany by Junghans. The work of max bill was a continuous balancing act between free art and applied art, between severe, reduced forms and flowing natural ones, between philosophical thinking and practical application. Examining the subject of "time" was a fascinating challenge for max bill, and one that occupied him for decades. A remarkable example of his work is a wall clock he designed for junghans in 1956/57. Rarely has the interplay of hour and minute been portrayed in a more stylized and elegantly simple way than with this clock, which can be seen today in the world's most important design museum - the museum of modern art. Max bill - a product of the bauhaus generation, pupil of walter gropius and kindred spirit of le corbusier and mies van der rohe - was a virtuoso designer and creative artist, as his diverse activities as a painter, architect, sculptor, teacher and designer amply demonstrate. His work is characterised by a clarity of design and precise proportions which are unrivalled to this day. The Max Bill wall clock with lines features a polished aluminum housing, white aluminum dial, chromium plated pointer, mineral glass and a quartz clock battery-operated movement.
