Loos liked to use this model in different sizes for interior decoration projects, including for the interior design of the Vienna and Paris branches of the gentlemen's outfitter Kniže and in a number of other interiors he furnished.
Friedrich Otto Schmidt mostly commissioned the Viennese master craftsman and metalworker Johannes Heeg with executing the clocks and ceiling lamps designed by Loos.
Sincere thanks to Mr Klaus Lorenz und Mr Johann Oberreiter from the Friedrich Otto Schmidt company in Vienna for their kind advice and for and for providing us with the documentation.
