Design: George Nelson, 1950.
The Nelson clocks were first born from a festive evening of collaboration.... George Nelson recalls: 'And there was one night when the ball clock got developed... Noguchi came by, and Bucky Fuller came by... we started making doodles. Then Bucky sort of brushed Noguchi aside. He said, 'This is a good way to do a clock,' and he made some utterly absurd thing. Everybody was taking a crack at it, pushing each other aside and making scribbles.... and the next morning there was this roll of drafting paper and somewhere in this roll there was the ball clock." These clocks are produced from the original design documents from the Nelson archive with the blessings of the George Nelson estate.
This oversized and heavy George Nelson clock is a classic! A timeless design from 1955! This beautiful clock was designed by George Nelson and has become an Icon of Modern Design. This is an authentic re-edition, fully authorized by the Nelson estate. Easy to attach to your wall, battery operated.
