about this Object:
This double-sided clock from Telefonbau + Normalzeit, Frankfurt, could be operated hanging freely from the ceiling or as a cantilever on the wall. No frills, the job was just to provide information. The dials in the clock can be rotated to take the other position. Both dials are equipped with a separate movement that runs on a standard Mignon battery. The condition of the watch is good, with few signs of wear. The two armchairs LC 1 by Le Corbusier shown in the last picture, you may find here.
