The Vitra Spindle Clock belongs to the family of wall clocks created by the designer George Nelson in the 1950s and via which modern design not only first found its way into American households, but through which Nelson cleverly embodied the post-war optimism of the 1950s. The Vitra Spindle Clock has 12 elongated, spindle-shaped rods crafted from walnut and is supplied with a modern quartz movement with matching battery.

Design Story

The American designer George Nelson developed in the late 1940s and early 1950s a collection of wall clocks, of which the Vitra Spindle Clock is a particularly charming representative. Nelson's aim with the clocks was to bring modern design into American homes, and to do that in a way which reflected the spirit of optimism of the post-war years. The charmingly playful Vitra Spindle Clock features 12 long spindle-shaped rods crafted from walnut and which are arranged like rays around the central aluminium dial. As with all Vitra Nelson clocks the Spindle Clock presents a pleasant and original alternative to the usual range of wall clocks and is supplied with a high quality quartz movement, including a 1.5 volt battery.
