“In designing the table clock, I was interested in exploring the well-established tradition of seeing artifacts as miniature architecture.” Michael Graves 

Michael Graves was a noted American architect and designer of consumer products. As well as principal of Michael Graves and Associates and Michael Graves Design Group, he was of a member of The New York Five and the Memphis Group and professor of architecture at Princeton University for nearly forty years. He was recognized as a major influence on architectural movements including New Urbanism, New Classical Architecture and particularly Postmodernism and was one of the most prominent and prolific American architects of the latter 20th century. He designed more than 350 buildings around the world but was perhaps best known for a teakettle.
