The Petal Clock Nelson was designed by George Nelson for Vitra.
The historic Swiss manufacturer Vitra is celebrated for both its cutting-edge, contemporary pieces as well as the brand's dedication to continuing the production of 20th-century design classics. This includes the Petal Clock by the late US designer George Nelson, a founding father and pioneer of American Modernism.
The Petal Clock Nelson is one of George Nelson's many clock designs, originally created for the Howard Miller company. The Petal Clock can be viewed as a futuristic flower, made up of four wooden petals, each representing fifteen minutes of time. Brass studs serve as hour markers, while a brass circle at the centre holds the minute and hour hands.
Both a useful timepiece and a stunning piece of wall art, the Petal Clock Nelson should take pride of place in a main living area or kitchen. This large clock has a diameter of 44.8cm and is equipped with high-quality quartz movements. Also available is the iconic Ball Clock, Polygon Clock and Sunburst Clock - all Nelson creations.
