Nelson Ball Clock by Vitra
designed by George Nelson

With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson's clocks embody the livelihood of the 1950s. Even today, 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.

  • Valuable as collector's items
  • Available in orange, natural, multicolored, black with brass, and red
  • Dimensions: 13" 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.

Iconic Mr Nelson. One of the finest clocks to own!

By 

from San J

Comments about Vitra Nelson Ball Clock:

Absolutely gorgeous. I bought my orange color after much debate about what would suit my grey, white and walnut interiors. The clock is finished beautifully and is very precise. No wobble with the hands as long as you adjust from behind, and not be lazy grabbing the hands lol. I expect this to last a lifetime, no pitting in the steel, no discoloration. A beautiful piece. Cheeky and lovely to look at, especially the soft shadows in the late afternoon. I am thrilled with the investment. Less is more and the right pieces make your home look incredible and uncluttered. ^^

Iconic Clock

By 

from San Jose CA

Comments about Vitra Nelson Ball Clock:

I have wanted one for a very long time, but when you are furnishing an apartment you tend to go for the larger items first. This clock is stunning and beautifully designed. Well crafted and casts lovely shadows on the wall. Feeling it in your hands, the quality is very very good. Just be careful and DO NOT adjust the hands from the front. Always take it down to adjust if you need too. I have a few George Nelson Clocks but the Orange color refreshes a neutral palette, tells time accurately and is a pleasure to look at. Lovely and worth the investment.
