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 true to the original form.
The traditional wall clock has a relaxing effect on the viewer and ensures conversations – possibly because of the materials, since wood and metal aren’t exceptionally new products but what counts is what George Nelson made out of them. The sophisticated quartz clockwork with the included 1.5 V battery is moreover a guarantee for a long life with a reliable time display.
