With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson’s clocks embody the attitudes 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, staying true to the original form.
The traditional wall clock has a relaxing effect on the viewer and sparks 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 (includes a 1.5 V battery) is moreover a guarantee for a long life with a reliable time measurement.
