"Nobody Really Needs a Clock"


“Nobody really needs a clock.”

It’s an interesting statement for a company which designs and sells just that, but one that underpins Leff Amsterdam’s entire philosophy. “That’s why our clocks tell interesting stories, not just the time.”

Each piece in the collection is beautiful in its simplicity. Stripped of their frills and accessories, they are instead characterised by precise shapes and striking colour combinations. In fact the plainest of them all – the Tile clock – stands out to me as the star of the collection, and it doesn’t even have any numbers.

I’m inclined to disagree, though. Every house needs at least one great clock.
