    Gilbert Rohde was an early forefather of the American industrial movement with Art Deco influence. He founded many of the essential elements of this now classic design period and is a well noted pioneer of the Herman Miller style, which he initially designed for and eventually became design director of in 1932. Rohde was extremely pivotal for Herman Miller as he convinced the company, previously involved solely in period reproduction furniture, to experiment with and invest in modern design. He established an environment in which commercial and creative pursuits merged and, in effect, laid the corporate foundations on which George Nelson, Charles and Ray Eames and many others thrived upon. Rohde also designed for Heywood Wakefield, Mutual Sunset Lamp Company, as well as other clients throughout his short lifetime.

    Gilbert Rohde is not only widely recognized for his furniture design but also lighting, radios, clocks and other products that changed the Art Deco era. One of his most influential contributions to design was his 1934 Century of Progress, World’s Fair Clock line introduced by Herman Miller Clock Co. This clock series was amongst the first examples of American Industrial design in everyday, useful objects in the home. These cutting edge electric clocks utilize unique materials and design, while exemplify the Rohde style of simple forms, gleaming surfaces, and sweeping lines. Amongst the most recognized clock in the 1934 World’s Fair catalog is the model 4082.

    The Gilbert Rohde Herman Miller 4082 clock was offered in 4 variations;
    No. 4082A: white curly maple with black strips and black dial
    No. 4082B: Maidou burl wood with chromium strips
    4082C: Harewood with chromium strips.
    4082D: Cork with chromium strips
    This particular clock is the desirable No. 4082B Maidou burl wood with chromium strips. The clock is a perfect example of the American Art Deco streamline design, with a look and style that only gets better with age. It features a highly figured Maidou burl veneer, original first style white face with black skyscraper hands and red second hand, and three chrome strips following the curved case of the clock. Original 1934 World’s Fair metal tag is still intact. Clock is a perfect example of this iconic era of design, by one of the most influential designers and companies in American history.
