Concept

With the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, George Nelson's clocks embody the joie de vivre of the 1950s. To this day, his table 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 a true-to-the-original form.
