Tick Tock, Wooden Clock by Charlotte Ackemar

Passing on its height and large, round face to a younger generation, the traditional grandfather clock takes a step back to let a more modern version sit for the family portrait. Tick Tock, Wooden Clock is a wooden derivative, achieved through a reductive aesthetic, from the recognizable form of a grandfather clock. Tick Tock, Wooden Clock, the winning submission of the Muuto Talent Award, evolved through a series of sketches, which depict multiple iterations of circles and line segments assembled into the clock’s form. Swedish design student Charlotte Ackemar chose to highlight the birchwood clock’s top-heavy face – the heart of the clock – and spindly legs held by a steam-bent crossbeam. Without a pendulum or solid body, the clock face appears to float in midair with Scandinavian beauty and contemporary charm.
