AC 01 Alarm Clock

Tired? Sleep.

The more technology we take into the bedroom, the less we end up switching off. Why let your mobile phone be the first thing you hear in the morning, when you can be woken by a sublime design object like the Punkt. AC 01, created by Jasper Morrison?

No fumbling around in the dark, no EM radiation emissions, and no unwanted calls or notifications in the middle of the night. Just the pleasure of entrusting your sleeping hours to a simple, stylish alarm clock that will charm you every time you wake up to it.

The layout of the AC 01 is as natural as the daily routine of sleeping and waking. Straightforward and intuitive, it combines sophisticated design with materials of enduring quality: the dial is protected by thick scratch-resistant glass, and the body is made of solid aluminium.

Activate or deactivate the alarm with a simple gesture – the status is clearly displayed on the dial. Using the snooze function couldn’t be easier: the whole back of the clock is a switch. Form follows function: good news when you’re not yet ready to open your eyes.

Glow-in-the-dark hands and dial mean you can tell the time in complete darkness, but if you prefer, the same clock-sized rear switch turns on an elegant light ring. Separate batteries for clock/alarm and light help ensure that the AC 01 never lets you down in its core role: waking you up and being an elegant start to the day.

About Us

Headquartered in Switzerland, Punkt. was established by Petter Neby in 2008 with the idea of bringing a breath of fresh air into the consumer electronics market with outstanding, timeless products designed to do their job, without intruding on their owner's time and attention. From the very beginning, renowned British industrial designer Jasper Morrison was on board as the company’s art director. The name Punkt. is taken from the Germanic word for ‘point’ or ‘full stop/period’, and was chosen to symbolize the way the company’s products are built around simplicity, clarity and focus. Punkt. launched its debut product, the DP 01 Cordless Phone, in January 2011 at Maison et Objet in Paris. Since then, the company has continued to develop stylish, carefully designed and elegantly crafted electronics products aimed at people who want to be in charge of the technology they buy, and who understand the importance of subtle beauty in everyday life.
