  • Dimensions: 29.5" diameter
  • Battery included

The Vitra Home Collection is not an interior design system or a homogeneous product line which promotes a uniform style. Rather, Vitra considers the furnishing of one's home as a process of collage - a gradual assemblage of products and objects. Not to be confused with coincidental accumulation of things, this process is a conscious arrangement that grows and changes with regard to both content and style, according to the owner's individual preferences and circumstances.

Designer

George NelsonGeorge Nelson
George Nelson, born 1908 in Hartford, Connecticut, studied architecture at Yale University. A fellowship enabled him to study at the American Academy in Rome from 1932-34. In Europe he became acquainted with the protagonists and major architectural works of modernism. He joined the editorial staff of Architectural Forum in 1935, where he was employed until 1944. A programmatic article on residential building and furniture design, published in Architectural Forum by Nelson in 1944, attracted the attention of D.J. DePree, head of the furniture company Herman Miller. Shortly after this, George Nelson assumed the position of design director at Herman Miller. Remaining there until 1972, he became a key figure of American design, also convincing the likes of Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard to work for Herman Miller. His collaboration with Vitra began in 1957. From 1946 onwards Nelson also ran his own design office, creating numerous products that are now regarded as icons of mid-century modernism. Nelson's office also produced important architectural works and exhibition designs. George Nelson died in New York in 1986. His archive belongs to the holdings of the Vitra Design Museum.

Comments about Vitra Nelson Sunflower Clock:

I placed my Nelson Sunflower Clock above the fireplace in my mid-century inspired family room and I couldn't be happier with the result. It's beautiful lines, impressive size, and mid-century style make it an anchor to the room as well as a conversation piece. The soft, subtle ticking sound of the clock makes me feel at home as I'm drinking my morning coffee. The only complaint I have is that I wish it wasn't so expensive so I could have purchased it sooner. That being said, it was worth every penny! This clock will be a staple in our home for years to come and when my kids grow up it will remind them of their childhood.

Service and delivery comments:

The package arrived promptly in excellent condition. The box has a foam shell in the shape of the clock so it can be perfectly preserved should you need to move it.
