DESIGNER | George Nelson
In 1947, the American designer George Nelson was commissioned to create a collection of clocks for Vitra. Nelson analysed how people used clocks and concluded that they read the time by discerning the relative position of the hands, which made the use of numbers unnecessary. Furthermore, since most people wore wristwatches, he assumed that clocks had become more of a decorative element for interiors.
