George Nelson was an American industrial designer, and one of the founders of American Modernism. While Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company both Nelson, and his design studio, George Nelson Associates, Inc., designed much of the 20th century's most iconic modernist furniture.
"What is the crowning glory of your civilization... the symbol as clear a statement as the pyramids, the Parthenon, the cathedrals? What is this symbol? What is its name? Its name is Junk. Junk is the rusty, lovely, brilliant symbol of the dying years of your time. Junk is your ultimate landscape." - George Nelson, at the International Design Conference in Aspen, 1965.
This clock is an inspired reproduction of the mid century (1950's) clock designs of George Nelson. This fun and interesting piece has classic retro 50's colours and provides a stylish alternative to the dull and boring modern wall clocks that abound the market.
With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, this clock embodies the joie de vivre of the 1950s. To this day, this remains a refreshing alternative to the usual style time-keepers.
