George Nelson already worked for the furniture company Herman Miller from 1946-66 as creative director. At the same time he designed table and wall clocks for the subsidiary Howard Miller Clock Company, capturing the attitude towards to life of the 50s and 60s. Selected designs of that time can be found in the Vitra Home Complements Collection.
1957 was a particularly productive year for the designer. He created more than 20 wall clocks in many colours and made of many materials,
One of the models of that period is the Spindle Clock. The body of this exciting timer is made of matte brass. The hands contrast in different colours and shapes.
A triangular hand for the hours in restrained white and hands for the minutes and seconds in powerful orange make it easy to read the time.
The unusual hour tubes are made of walnut wood and spread a pleasantly warm atmosphere. The Vitra clocks by Georg Nelson are delivered with a top-quality quartz clockwork.
