As a truly multi-talentent designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His Zoo Timers - strongly colourful personalities from the animal kingdom - contrast sharply with his sculptural wall clocks from the 1950s thanks to their graphic touch. The Zoo Timers offer children a playful and enjoyable approach to telling the time. Collection Vitra Design Museum.
The George Nelson 1965 designed wall clocks consist of metal and wood, possess a high quality quartz-clockwork and are delivered including a 1.5 V battery. The Zoo Timers are exposed in the collection of the Vitra Design Museum.
For a person born in Hartford, the insurance capital of America, George Nelson would become one of the greatest risk takers in the history of design. In fact he would come to redefine what a designer is. Designer George Nelson
