Design George Nelson, 1955.
Black clock face, silver & brass tone metal.
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.
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 wall clocks remain a refreshing alternative to the usual timekeepers. Kirch & Co. presents a re-edition of the designs so cherished by collectors in true to the original form.
