Belief in progress and growing economic prosperity were central aspects of the American way of life in the 1950s. Everything seemed possible and people strove to be "modern." With the aim of bringing contemporary modern design into people’s homes, designer George Nelson conceived of a wide array of everyday objects including lamps, clocks and other domestic accessories.
Many of these products became icons of mid-century modern design and his wall and table/desk clocks were a huge success. The Wall Clocks are available in a diverse range of forms and materials. Equipped with high-quality quartz movements, they offer a refreshing alternative to conventional clocks. The perfect model can be found for every occasion and home among the wide selection of different designs.
The Ball Clock symbolizes what defined George Nelson, whose work is featured in the New York Museum of Modern Art’s collection, as one of this century’s signature designers: a joyous, often irreverent exploration of form and inspired simplicity.
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 table clocks remain a refreshing alternative to the usual timekeepers.
As a truly multi-talented designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His Zoo Timers Clocks feature crazy, fun animals in bright colours and they offer children a playful and cheerful start to telling the time.
All the George Nelson Clocks offer:
- Battery included
- High quality quartz movements
- Authentic re-edition of the 1950s classic designs
