Design by George Nelson, 1948.
By Vitra.

It is what it is: a bold, familiar form made extraordinary by the creativity of George Nelson. Black lacquered wood Asterisk face with chunky, angular hands for easy time-telling and a singular look.

With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, Nelson's clocks embody the joie de vivre 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 in true to the original form. Vitra Design Museum Collection.
