I just bought a beautiful alarm clock. I wanted a small clock, that I could take travelling, and it needed to be an functional, yet fantastic piece of design work. So, I was out with AMC + Jenna and stumbled across this fantastic device. It was designed by flemming bo hansen in 2002, and is made by Rosendahl.
It has adjustable snooze, and has a backlit LCD (only when you press on the top) so it won’t keep you awake with the light at night. It’s a bit pricy, but I consider it a design icon, and it met all of my criteria that I had in mind.
