Re-release of the Static table clock by Richard Sapper

Designer Richard Sapper (1932-2015) had just relocated to Milan, where he started working at the architect Gio Ponti’s office before then moving to the design department of the prestigious department store La Rinascente. In 1959, Sapper began working with Italian architect and designer Marco Zanuso as a consultant for the electrical company Brionvega. Sapper received his first personal commission from the Milan-based timepiece Lorenz, which led him to design the table clock “Static”. The clock, which has the amusing statics of a roly-poly toy, swiftly rolled out the carpet to Sapper’s first Compasso d’Oro in 1960. After countless years of requests, Sapper’s table clock is now back in production at Lorenz using new technology. It is available in red, white or black, as well as brushed or polished in steel, gold or burnished. The “Static” is packaged in an elegant leather case.
