about max bill


max bill – a product of the bauhaus generation, pupil of walter gropius and kindred spirit of le corbusier and mies van der rohe – was a virtuoso designer and creative artist, as his diverse activities as a painter, architect, sculptor, teacher and designer amply demonstrate. his work is characterised by a clarity of design and precise proportions which are unrivalled to this day.
   

max bill by junghans is available in the form of wristwatches and wall clocks wherever clocks and watches and good design are to be found.

his work


the work of max bill was a continuous balancing act between free art and applied art, between severe, reduced forms and flowing natural ones, between philosophical thinking and practical application. examining the subject of ”time” was a fascinating challenge for max bill, and one that occupied him for decades. a remarkable example of his work is a wall clock he designed for junghans in 1956/57. rarely has the interplay of hour and minute been portrayed in a more stylised and elegantly simple way than with this clock, which can be seen today in the world’s most important design museum – the museum of modern art.
   

in 1962 max bill created mechanical wristwatches for junghans – impressive timepieces, not only for their aesthetic design, but also their precision. these exceptional and exclusive models have been revived by junghans with their original max bill design.
