TIMELESS WALL CLOCK BY GEORGE NELSON
George Nelson (1908-1986) was a pioneering modernist who ranks with such outstanding American designers as Raymond Loewy, Charles Eames, and Eliot Noyes.
Nelson's office produced some of the twentieth century's canonical pieces of industrial design, many of which are still in production: the ball clock, the bubble lamp, and the sling sofa.
George Nelson's clocks are magnificent art pieces. One can just collect them. At least, I can! They have unique shapes, unique styles, ravishing colors and a lot of appeal. They are modern, retro and have the power to make statements.
Other George Nelson's timeless pieces are:
- Coconut Chair which was originally introduced by Herman Miller in 1955, the Nelson coconut chair is a 20th century furniture icon. It has a simple, striking shape, and it's also a very comfortable place to unwind at home or in the private office or lounge.
- Marshmallow sofa is a landmark of modern design that’s still turning heads and making people smile.
-Introduced in 1946, the Nelson platform bench remains a landmark of modern design.
