World renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright has designed many things both great and small. Everything from skyscrapers to the smallest household items. When Wright designs a home, he doesn’t just design the house, he designs all the things inside the home from furnishings to lighting fixtures. The Bogk House Wall Clock was created to mimic a lighting fixture designed for the conservatory of the Frederick C. Bogk residence in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
The modern designed Bogk House Wall Clock has a similar Prairie Style design and closely reflects the look and feel of the Bogk House. It has a retro elegance and modern style that blends well even in a more traditional home’s decor. It has a clean, linear design that is representative of the Prairie Style of design.
The frame is lacquered in a clear finish that allow the natural warmth of the alder wood that the clock is constructed with. The square face of the clock is simple and devoid of numbers, instead using small brown squares to designate the 15 minute marks. There are broad, easy to read hands and a delicate second hand that picks up the Prairie Style with a small square design element. A wooden pendulum moves back and forth behind the square bars of the alder wood cage. Although the Bogk House Wall Clock has a pendulum like a mechanical driven clock, the clock actually runs on battery power and a good quality and accurate quartz movement.
