Memphis Milano design"The ‘Metropole’ clock is one of his best known designs for the group. Influenced by his early architectural training, Sowden was interested in classical proportions at the time. As a result the clock is unusually harmonious for a postmodern object. Sowden used the ‘golden section’ – derived ratios and squares as compositional elements. However, the small clock movement is in an unnecessarily huge box. As Sowden himself described, its anti-functionalism makes the ‘Metropole’ clock a postmodern object. The clock was designed ‘on the kitchen table’, without the use of computer. Sowden chose particular patterns of plastic laminate to decorate the form. Like many other early Memphis objects, the ‘Metropole’ clock was named after a luxury hotel.
