With the goal of bringing modern design to American homes, George Nelson designed a range of everyday objects, including a wide selection of wall clocks. The classic Petal Clock is now available in black and makes an outstanding accessory for the black Eames Lounge Chair
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.
