The Pratt Institute's 50 Most Groundbreaking Designs

The Quacker Clock

Artist: Belle Kogan

Year: 1935

Medium: Product Design

This duck-shaped alarm clock used the inexpensive and durable material of plastic, which at the time was a new medium to work with. Using plastic made mass production of the clock possible, while today Kogan's clocks have become collector's items. Kogan was one of the first American female industrial designers.
