With a high-grade quartz clockwork and using timeless solid Walnut, the Chronopak Desk Clock exudes style and sophistication, evocative of classic mid-century design. The minimalist hour markers are set against a bold black clock face, making it easy to read and juxtaposing the face against the warm walnut body. The clock works equally well in various settings, from a study desk space to a living side table.
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.
