The artistic Cone Base Nelson Desk Clock was designed by George Nelson for the manufacturer Vitra.
Having an architectural background, Nelson began to produce furniture for the European market in 1957. It has been said that no other prominent designer spoke as intelligently or wrote as coherently about design. His estate is managed by the Vitra Design Museum and includes many plans, drawings, photographs and manuscripts produced by Nelson.
The many home accessories created by George Nelson include a variety of desirable table clocks. The Cone Base Nelson Desk Clock is a free-standing analogue desk clock made from metal and having hands fashioned from walnut. The overall design is modern with classic lines. The base of the clock is a squat cone shape supporting the clock face. The hours are marked but not numbered. The Cone Base Nelson Desk Clock has a width of 13.5cm and a height of 17.1cm. The depth of the clock is 6.2cm. This innovative desk clock offers a novel substitute for the traditional type of timepiece. With its high-quality quartz movements and striking appearance, this clock is the embodiment of precision time-keeping and ornate appeal.
