Lovingly hand-crafted to the precise specifications of the original 1950s design, the STIN.com version of George Nelson's classic Petal Wall clock is a welcome addition to any interior design scheme, adding gorgeous shapes and colours, along with clear, reliable functionality. Its four quarters each have their own vibrant colours, bringing the intrinsic beauty of flowers indoors, while the crisp black hands make telling the time effortless. Its rounded edges also serve to soften the design and complete a real design classic.
George Nelson was a designer for whom balance was everything. Not content with simply using organic or geometric form, he would combine the two to devastating effort, carving out a design style that was entirely his own. This George Nelson Clock is the perfect example of this, with the soft rounded edges and vibrant colours of its namesake playing off the straight lines and crisp circles of the clock face. Ever since its first appearance over half a century ago, it has hung in stylish lounges and upmarket dining rooms the world over.
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.
