Arne Jacobsen Roman Wall Clock. The Arne Jacobsen Roman Clock (also known as the Romer clock) is a classic icon of Scandinavian modern design. This beautiful wall clock was designed by Danish designer Arne Jacobsen in 1942. Arne Jacobsen created the Roman Clock for the National Town Hall in Aarhus Denmark. The hour markers of this clock are in Roman numerals. This clock typifies the Danish Modern style which Arne Jacobsen developed. It is a gracious and very functional wall clock and a perfect addition for the home, home office or business. The Arne Jacobsen Roman Clock is easy to attach to a wall and works with a single AA battery (included).

Arne Jacobsen was one of the most expressive pioneers of functional modern design like the Swan, Egg and Ant chairs. Jacobsen was born in 1902 and lived and worked in Copenhagen. Arne Jacobsen was also a famous architect. Most of his greatest buildings are in Copenhagen and include the Bellavista Housing Estate, the Danish National Bank and the famous 1960 Radisson SAS Royal Hotel. In the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel Jacobsen's famous attention to detail encompassed every aspect of the building, right down to the cutlery and the door handles, and, as a tribute to Jacobsen, room 606 remains to this day a shrine to its designer, featuring the original furniture and fittings he created for it.
