The Kieninger Clock Factory was founded in 1912 in the Black Forest by Joseph Kieninger and therefore is the oldest existing manufacturer of mechanical clock movements for grandfather, wall, and mantel clocks in the world. Since 1917 the Company has been located in Aldingen, a charming village just between the Black Forest and ”Schwäbische Alb”. Today, the Company occupies a 54.000 square foot manufacturing facility, newly constructed in 1991 and employs about 100 dedicated and highly skilled workers and staff. In 1993, Kieninger became part of the Howard Miller Group (USA), the largest manufacturer of grandfather clocks in the world. Art Deco or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s. It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Ageimagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colours, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation. Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes deco from the organic motifs favoured by its predecessor Art Nouveau. Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as "an assertively modern style...[that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material...[and] the requirements of mass production". During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
