1960s Clock

1960s style clock

Every house should have a clock and this clock was the one to have in the 1960s and, I believe, it still could well be today.

The 1960s, both in the UK and elsewhere, was a time of great design and innovation and in this period many designs were created which have been developed and are still available today. Clocks were particularly suitable for design since they do not have a shape which is predetermined, other than to have some form of dial and hands, and many weird and wonderful designs were invented. For this clock, however, I have used the ideas from various designs created during this period and produced a sort of composite incorporating many of the features that I particularly like.

If it were real, then the materials used for the clock would be metal and wood, materials which were much in evidence as the 1960s wore on into the following decade and which are popular today. In order to showcase the clock I have shown it against a wallpaper which could well have been in use at the time although perhaps not in the colour shown. However this colour does help to show up the features of the design.

At present a slightly older Edwardian house is being developed at 20th Century 3D although I hope to return to more 1960s and 1970s style homes and furniture in the near future.
