An icon of mid-century classic design, the Model 1 clock is finished in a light grey/blue glazed porcelain finish, with a tapered stem ballooning into the clock face. Minimalist and characterful, the Model 1 is sculptural and elegant, and serves as the perfect celebration of one of the 21st Century's most beloved designers.
George Nelson read architecture at the renowned Yale University and completed his studies at the American academy in Rome. He was editor in chief of the 'Architectural Forum' from 1935 to 1944.
After having set up his own Architecture and Industrial design company in 1946, he began collaborating with Vitra in 1957. His pieces, such as the Coconut chair, his clocks and the Marshmallow Sofa, are regarded highly amongst the 20th Century design classics.
