Oliver Hemming

Oliver Hemming the British designer who is creating a reputation for producing the very best alarm clocks and combining them with first class audio, is off to a good start in 2019 by picking up a prestigious GOOD DESIGN® Award for his Songbird speaker alarm clock.

The GOOD DESIGN® Awards are the world’s most prestigious and oldest Design Awards program and are presented annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. They were founded in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.

This will be of keen interest to interior designers and operators who are looking for the best new accessories to complement their Hotel rooms and Songbird is now the Bluetooth speaker alarm clock of choice for many of the world’s finest Hotels.

The Uptown model is best suited to smaller bedside spaces while the Downtown fits better in more open areas, but both have the exact same specification and performance and all styles have a beautifully refined tone, impeccable good looks and very simply intuitive controls, making them perfect for a hotel environment. Available in black, white and ebony veneer, there are in total six models to choose from.

Oliver’s background in designing and making contemporary clocks goes back 40 years to when he graduated from Art School as a silversmith in England and this skill is probably best represented today by his beautiful Desire Alarm clocks.

Luxury Hotels need the very best, and until these finely detailed designs came along that was hard to find at a reasonable cost. The hand polished steel cases have beveled mineral glass lenses and a jewel like quality that comes from the exquisite attention to detail. The simple graphics of the dial are illuminated at night by a light that comes on only when the clock is picked up or tilted slightly backwards, so there are no annoying lights to disturb the guest at night. They also have a 100% silent sweep action movement so neither will there be any ticking.

The Desire series is now approved by the some of the world’s best hoteliers and comes in chrome, rose gold, black, yellow gold and brushed gold as shown here.
