Sculptural Wall Clock
The "Flock of Butterflies” wall clock by George Nelson for Vitra was named after its source of inspiration. Butterflies sitting closely next to each other, look like a large three-dimensional structure that is constantly in motion, always slightly changing its shape.
The “Flock of Butterflies” clock, too, seems to consist of several single parts, which appear to be constantly moving depending on the angle of view and light. The Vitra wall clock is composed of various woods and metals, creating a special wall object with sculptural charm.
George Nelson's Wall Clocks
With the Wall Clocks (1948-1960), George Nelson designed a diverse range of clock models, of which some have been promoted to icons of the design of the 1950s. With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson’s clocks embody the attitude to life of the 1950s. His clocks are still a refreshing alternative to common timepieces.
