GEORGE NELSON ASTERISK CLOCK

With its crisp geometric patterns, clean straight lines and bold, uncompromising colour scheme, the Black Asterisk Clock is a cool, stylish addition to any space. Its angular design is typical of the panache that Nelson brought to all of his clock designs, and the big, bold hands make telling the time completely effortless. This is definitely one design that could hang over any dining area, living room or stylish bedroom.

THE STORY BEHIND THE GEORGE NELSON ASTERISK CLOCK

While the Ball Clock, Sunburst Clock and Eye Clock may be his most famous designs, the Asterisk Clock is a George Nelson piece that is as stylish and functional as anything he ever produced. Made from a single shaped piece of aluminium, which provides clean, crisp lines and an instantly recognisable silhouette, it first appeared during the late 1950s. Slightly smaller than many of Nelson's designs, it found its way into the hearts of consumers with its adaptability, functionality and effortless cool. It is little wonder, when you look at the Asterisk that Nelson's work found its way into the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

George Nelson

1908-1986 (United States)

American industrial designer, George Nelson was one of the founders of American modernism. He was renowned for finding inspiration in the unlikeliest places. Instead of looking for a shape that resembled a human body, Nelson introduced the idea that anything could be turned into a unique furniture design. His most famous pieces are based on coconuts and marshmallows.

"I have never met a designer who was retained to keep things the same as they were"
