Kenneth Grange Clock £4.99 on EBay

I couldn’t believe my luck when I spotted this clock on eBay. 10 years ago when studying in Leeds, I picked one up in the city centre Habitat store (which sadly no longer exists). As a student at the time I couldn’t afford to buy it. The clock was designed by Kenneth Grange for Habitat, joint founder of Pentagram, product designer for Kenwood and responsible for the styling of the iconic Intercity 125 train.

The face has a really simple layout with a contrasting red second hand. I think I read somewhere that Grange had based the design of an earlier barometer on the mechanical dials of an aircraft, maybe this is the case here. The body of the clock is cast aluminium which has a brushed then specialist finish, either annodising or black nickel plating. The inside is quite intricate, and there is evidence of further machining and finishing processes where the standard clock mechanism is mounted. 'Designed by Kenneth Grange' is cast in the removable plastic cover to the back. All this for less than 5 quid!

Although not in the exhibition itself, the clock did feature on the promotional poster for the Kenneth Grange retrospective at the Design Museum in 2011 - Making Britain Modern. If you click on the thumbnail image below it can be seen.
