Design George Nelson, 1958
Birch plywood or painted black with brass
Made in Poland by Vitra
With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson's clocks embody the joie de vivre of the 1950s. To this day, his wall clocks remain a refreshing alternative to the usual timekeepers. The Vitra Design Museum presents a re-edition of the designs so cherished by collectors – in a true-to-the-original-form.
