Design Michael Graves, 1986
Maple veneer, quartz movement
Made by Alessi

Mantel clock has been created by Michael Graves. A small, domestic work of architecture in wood, the Mantel clock is made entirely by hand and fascinates with its many construction details. The designer investigated the long tradition of conceiving objects in terms of architecture, as if they were miniature architectural creations. A clock as a work of architecture, the pendulum clock features maple-veneered wood and quartz movement.

Born in Indianapolis, Michael Graves has taught architecture in Princeton since 1962. His architectural works include the Portland Building and the Humana Building, the extension of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Newark Museum. He created the best-selling 9093 kettle for Alessi.

Michael Graves

Michael Graves (b. 1934) is an American architect who has become a household name for his domestic products sold at Target stores. He is from Indianapolis, earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati, and earned his master’s degree from Harvard. A practicing architect since 1964, he directs the firm Michael Graves & Associates, with offices in Princeton, NJ and New York City, which has designed a wide variety of commercial and residential buildings and interiors. Graves was elected a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in 1979. In 1999 Graves was awarded the National Medal of Arts, in 2001 the AIA Gold Medal, in 2010 the AIA Topaz Medal, and in 2012 the Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture. He is also a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council.
Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
