Designed by George Nelson. With a view to bringing modern design right into the American home, George Nelson designed a range of products offering a new and unconventional interpretation of such everyday items as lamps, wall clocks, and other domestic accessories.
George Nelson's wall clocks typify the spirit of the early 1950s and, at the dawn of a new century, are still a refreshing alternative to more traditional timepieces. The models selected by the Vitra Design Museum were designed between 1948 and 1952 and some of them continued to be manufactured until the mid-1970s. Made of wood and metal, these re-editions mirror the original design so beloved of collectors right down to the smallest detail. Not only the dimensions of the clock's housing and its hands but also the way it has been constructed, finish and color are true to Nelson's original designs.
