Design by George Nelson, 1955.
By Vitra.

When originally manufactured, the Flock of Butterflies clock was known only by its design number (2226), as were all Nelson clocks. Reissued as the "Flock of Butterflies" in 2010 by Vitra, this wall clock conveys movement and a radiant energy in its intricately formed varnished aluminum surface.

Design associates George Nelson, Isamu Noguchi, Bucky Fuller, and Irving Harper erupted in to a collaborative exercise on clock design one evening over drinks. From that spontaneous evening, grew an estimated 150 unique clocks designed by George Nelson into the 50s and 60s. These icons of modern design remain relevant and imaginative today and are produced by Vitra using the same design specifications as their original producer, the Howard Miller Company.
