Black is Beautiful: Vitra Nelson Clocks, Reissued

Modern Decor

vitra-nelson-sunflower-clock-black-edition-01_zoomAnyone inclined to yawn at the announcement of yet another reissue of a Mid-Century icon need only look at the latest iterations of the Sunflower and Sunburst clocks, designed by George Nelson in the 1940s and 1950s, and presented by Vitra at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Recasting the two most dynamic of Nelson’s wood and metal clock designs in dramatic black (and hints of gold) may be a prime example of how to shine an admiring new spotlight on all-too-familiar emblems of Modernism’s golden age. Nelson, we suspect, would have approved.
