The Asterisk Clock was designed by George Nelson and is now marketed by the Swiss manufacturer Vitra. During the economic boom of the '50s new modern designs found their way into apartments and houses. George Nelson was one of the leading designers of this time, and one who no longer wanted to make only practical, but also aesthetically pleasing, everyday objects and thus he designed a series of home accessories with a creative clarity. The Asterisk Clock from the series of Nelson Wall Clocks impresses with its simple, distinctive shapes and is a highlight on every wall.

Design Story

The contemporary furniture manufacturer Vitra stands for powerful designs that bring a high quality of aesthetics and function into homes and offices. That's also what the American designer George Nelson sought in the '50s - a time when the American dream and the idea of progress, that everything is possible, flourished. The economic boom and the desire to bring a modernity into Americans lives led George Nelson to design a series of everyday objects that were not only functionally but also provided a creative splash of colour or style. In addition to the wall clocks Nelson's work also features lights and other home accessories. The Vitra wall clocks are a series of thematically different objects made of different woods and metals and which have become popular collectibles: a fact which inspired the Vitra Design Museum to create a collection of re-editions. The Asterisk Clock creates a beautiful view point in space; its striking, straight dial unfolds into a unique effect and the graphic design of oversized pointer is a refreshing change from traditional wall clocks.
