“One cannot create happiness with beautiful objects, but you can spoil a lot of happiness with bad ones.” Like his very wise words, Finn Juhl’s work is timeless. There is no better way of measuring just how timeless than with the FJ Clock.
Originally created as part of the interior of the New York United Nation Trusteeship Council Chamber in 1950, the FJ Clock may record time’s passage but its aesthetics are entirely unaffected by it. Up until last year, the only place you could appreciate this classic Danish design was at the UN building itself.
In October of 2015 a half sized version of the original Clock was unveiled at the Danish embassy in Tokyo. This piece of modern design history is now available to the public for the first time from Architect Made.
