Twisted normal things

German designer Axel Schindlbeck made his first work experiences with Sigi Moeslinger and Masamichi Udagawa in New York City, and in the year 2009 he relocated to Paris to join the team around Mathieu Lehanneur, working as his head designer for 4 years.

In 2014 he founded the research and development firm MNTNT together with developer Fred Mauclere. The Albert Clock was their first product. After a successful crowdfunding campaign in 2015 the development of the clock was launched. The first product line of the Albert Clock was put into production the following year.

It is thanks to the originality of the Albert Clock that international medias took notice of the clock and spread the word. The lively media interest contributed significantly to the fact Albert Clock gained attention in the art and contemporary design world and finally sparked the interest of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Today the Albert Clock is available at the MoMA Store and has evolved to one of their best-selling products.
