Beautifully pieced together from perfectly worked wooden elements, the Vitra Diamond Markers Clock is a highly distinctive object, that is unmistakably from the mind of its maker, George Nelson, the esteemed American industrial designer.
Subtly coloured and wonderfully presented, the Diamond Markers Clock is a real icon of mid-century modern design and is capable of bringing a sense of style and heritage to any environment.
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.
