Witherspoon AQUA Clock
Designer: Michael Graves
Our Witherspoon Watch grows up to be one cool wall clock
Our ever popular Witherspoon Watch is now available as a clock! This beautiful Witherspoon Wall Clock 12″ has a quiet sweep second hand making it perfect for not only living spaces, but for bedroom or wherever sound is a concern.
Witherspoon Wall Clock 12″ is made of stainless steel and is 12″ in diameter. It operates on a single “AA” Battery. With it aqua face and yellow second hand, the Witherspoon Wall Clock 12″ is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
Witherspoon is also the namesake of his latest timepiece and NOW clock for PROJECTS. Like his building, The Witherspoon Clock is bold in its use of color and scale. The clock evokes the rich tones of the building’s blue and rust color bricks as well as its bold vistas of the town’s center. Graves’ bold use of color is mirrored by his design and bold colors of the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts which he recently re-designed. It is located on “Witherspoon” Street in Princeton, New Jersey.
Made of stainless steel with an aqua color dial with black hour and minute hands and complemented with a yellow second hand (Red color dial with silver hour and minute hands for Red version). The movement is encased in ABS plastic for protection and flexibility for hanging.
Ships only within U.S.
About Michael Graves
Michael Graves received his architectural training at the University of Cincinnati and at Harvard University. Among his many completed projects are the Portland Building, the Humana Building, the Clos Pegase Winery in the Napa Valley, and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. Graves is the winner of fifteen Progressive Architecture Design Awards, nine American Institute of Architects National Honor Awards, and thirty-eight New Jersey Society of Architects, AIA Awards.
Michael Graves was recently awarded the national medal of the arts. Here is a transcript of what President Clinton said at the ceremony:
Michael Graves is a rare individual who finds equal wonder in things both large and small. As one of our century's most important designers and architects, he has said he gets as much pleasure planning a large building as he does designing a spatula. (Laughter.)- THE PRESIDENT
So it's little wonder that Michael Graves' work can be found from our shopping malls to our National Mall. From an award-winning office building to a tea kettle; to the creative scaffolding around the Washington Monument -- which, I might say, has enriched the lives of every person in Washington, D.C. -- (applause) - - and made those often stuck in what is now America's most crowded traffic patterned city have their time pass a little better, Michael Graves has created art that surrounds our lives.
He calls himself a great practitioner, but in some ways his challenge is more daunting than that of a physician. As Frank Lloyd Wright once said, "After all, the doctor can bury his mistake," -- (laughter) -- "but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines." (Laughter.) The only thing that grows and covers Michael Graves' work is our admiration, appreciation and respect."
