You can tell that the Tick Tock Wooden Clock was born of the contemporary era, due predominantly to its purist composition, its pristine machine-assisted craftsmanship and its quirky configuration; however, the exquisite timber piece expresses its assembly and the beauty of its materiality in a coherent way, making it an object that might have appealed to many generations past.

Charlotte Ackemar's standing clock is a charming example of Scandinavian design with its use of pale lumber, basic geometries and meticulous manufacturing without embellishment. The enchanting timepiece won the Swedish designer the Muuto Talent Award for 2012, a competition including a growing number of entries by other Nordic students. With its lovely spindly legs, its deep circular dial and its subtle hands made of timber too, the Tick Tock Wooden Clock is undeniably delightful.
