The world's most exclusive Islamic Prayer Clock, recently launched by the British clockmaker Smith of Derby, has been included in the prestigious publication 'Objects of Desire'.
The book, produced by Commercial Interior Design and featuring 100 luxury and inspirational products and items, was unveiled this week at a glitzy ceremony at the Ayyam Gallery, Al Quoz, Dubai.
Bob Betts, Smith of Derby Managing Director, said he was 'thrilled' at its inclusion, adding "To make it into such a high-end publication so soon after the clock's launch is a testimony to the work, research and design that the team at Smith of Derby has put into the timepiece.
It is great to see our Prayer Clock sitting next to the most elaborate chandelier in the world, made by Faustig, which hangs in the Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque Abu Dhabi."
The coffee-table book's launch event was attended by more than 150 industry experts from the world of architecture and interior design.
Jenny Eagle, Editor of Commercial Interior Design, said the prayer clock was selected because it was "unique" and desirable to people in the UAE.
