Vitra Ball Clock – George Nelson

FotorCreated16

Decisions, decisions. Which colour to choose? George Nelson’s series of architectural clocks have always been on my watch list. Re-introduced and nowadays produced by Swiss company Vitra, the Ball Clock was designed by his firm, George Nelson Associates, in the early 1950s. This actually led to recent controversy, his company having employed other famous designers among which Irving Harper, whom is today credited by some for actually designing the clock series created for George Nelson Associates.
