In June of 2015, my wife and I began the remodel of our home's kitchen. After its completion two months later, the project turned out just as we had hoped. The finished style was clean, modern, with a soothing vibe that made it a joy to be in.
Everything was just about perfect, accept for one small detail: it needed a new wall clock. A clock moderately-sized, non-ticking, visually striking, and most importantly, one that would satisfy my longstanding preference for minimalism design.
After searching online, as well as several local design stores in and around Minneapolis,
I wasn't able to find a clock that appealed to me. So, I decided to design one myself.
After sourcing all of the necessary component parts, I assembled a minimalist-styled wall clock with no dial graphics, slender hands, a sleek outer frame, and a non-ticking quartz movement that was completely silent.
That 'kitchen' clock, –– which I later named NADA –– turned out to be the inspiration to design and create several more clocks. And with that, JONSSON Timeware was born.
Our mission upon opening shop in late 2015, was to create and market a line of analog wall clocks that were well-designed, thoughtfully manufactured, and affordably priced.
We wanted them to be classically modern, graphically engaging, and made with premium components. We wanted them to be as dependable as they were beautiful, each one imbued with the look and feel of a well-crafted instrument.
Today, that same desire for quality is again reflected in our 2021 Collection ––
a balanced mix of minimalism, tradition, and wall-popping color.
