George Nelson Steering Wheel Clock

With its sleek, understated design and lightweight sculptural frame, the version of George Nelson's iconic 1961 Steering Wheel Clock is the picture of classic American style. Its cool, sophisticated colour scheme allows it to blend into any décor with ease, while its large, eye-catching clock hands make it both easy to read and add a touch of Nelson's trademark panache. This is a true Mid-Century classic.

The story behind the George Nelson Steering Wheel Clock

First released in the early 1960s, during one of Nelson's most prolific design periods, the Steering Wheel Clock typified one of the legendary American designer's trademarks; using minimal materials to create something truly unique. Consisting solely of a round metal frame and a small clock face, Nelson had the inspiration for the design while stuck in traffic on his way to his workshop, and began developing the idea as soon as he got into work that day. Within a week, the design was complete, and remains a public favourite to this very day.

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"
