George Nelson’s iconic 1950s homeware designs epitomise the progressive ideals of mid-century modernism. The designer brought together bold shapes, vibrant shades and innovative technologies, creating products which retain their vivid sense of charm and style over a half a century later.
The Sunburst Clock from George Nelson’s collection at Vitra has a dazzling solar appeal. Each pointed ‘ray’ reaches out from the central face, as a stand-in for the traditional numbering system. The metal face is fitted with perfectly-formed hour, minute and second hands, complete with a smooth quartz-driven movement that turns the measure of time into an engrossing aesthetic experience. Hang it up on a statement wall, to bring an extra beam of sunshine into your living space.
