TIDVIS Grandfather Clocks Harken to the Modern Period

As technologies and tastes change, have you figured that, just maybe, your father's father furnished his house much differently to his father's father? TIDVIS Grandfather Clocks appear to address design's tendency to evolve by presenting a modernist piece to the modern person.

Concrete was all the rage in the 1950s when my grandpa was in the prime of his life, so it could very well be that this collection of beautiful brutalist objects is targeted at buyers in the 20 to 40 year-old bracket. I must say that I appreciate the marriage of soft streamlined forms, the subtle rough textures and the way that they have together been sculpted into the old standing clock form.

While some may be put off by the weight of the TIDVIS Grandfather Clocks, the Kvarnen Studio manufactures a model in ash for Forsberg Form as well.
