Arne Jacobsen also designed the clocks on his buildings: Aarhus City Hall, Rødovre City Hall and Denmark’s National bank.
Using these clocks as inspiration a new series of wall clocks, table clocks and wristwatches was designed in close collaboration with Arne Jacobsens former employee, Teit Weylandt. Arne Jacobsen won the competition to design Denmark’s National Bank in 1961.
The building was completed in 1978, seven years after his death.
The Bankers Clock hangs in the 20-metre high lobby, which extends like a cathedral through the building’s six floors. The walls are covered in marble, and daylight pours through narrow vertical windows
