Adolf Loos also used clocks for several interior decorations, whichwere planned by him. These were either smaller table clocks orlarger floor clocks. They are all realised by some fewmanufacturers, namely by the Viennese clock maker Heeg. Thewatchcases are always constructed after the same principle: thenarrow, cast, metallic outline is formed to a case, which caneasily be looked through from all sides. The sides are oftenvitrified with faceted sanded panes. The clockwork is mounteddirectly behind the clock face and together with it attached to theglass back of the clock case, which is not visible from the front.This way of constructing enabled Loos to individualise clocksaccording to their special requirements of the interior which wasdesigned by him. By simply extending or shortening the outline,which is welded in at the edges, it can be broadened, heightened orshortened without having to change the constructive principle. Theclocks have different surfaces depending on the room where theywere positioned: verified are so far nickelplated, coppered,brownish patinated as well as clocks, whose racks have beenpolished.
Hardly any other object illustrates the general tendencies of theViennese \“constructive\” Jugendstil and the special attitude ofAdolf Loos towards the fitments which he designed, better thanthese clocks: They are, apart from their rhombic legs, entirelyunadorned; their single components are constructively ortechnically conditioned; the constructive detailed solutions areclearly visible.
