GEORGE NELSON PILL DESK CLOCK

Built to the very same specifications as George Nelson's seminal 1954 original, the STIN.com version of the Pill Desk Clock makes just as big a statement today as the very first one did all those year ago. Sporting an unmistakable silhouette, characteristic of Nelson's innovative style, the two convex wooden panels make it a spectacular addition to almost any space it sits in. And with a strong, sturdy metal base and artistic clock face, it remains a favourite among George Nelson aficionados.

THE STORY BEHIND THE GEORGE NELSON PILL DESK CLOCK

While many people associate George Nelson with his use of metal and vibrant colours in his clock pieces, the Pill Desk Clock displayed one of his other passions; that of manipulating materials into surprising, innovative shapes. Released in 1954 as one of his final desk clock designs, 'The Pill' was constructed from two pieces of wood, honed-down to create the two sides of the structure, adding a sculptural flourish to one of the most practical everyday accessories. Nelson himself regarded the Pill Desk Clock as one of his finest works, and who are we to argue?

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"
