Gallery: Vitra Nelson Desk Clocks
Filed under: Decor
I'm usually pretty positive and like most of what I post on here, but I also get creeped out fairly easily and can honestly say this George Nelson Eye Clock design is not for me. I just don't need a large mechanical eye staring down at me while I'm trying to work, or relax and watch TV, or whatever. But designed in 1957 and reissued by Vitra, it's amazingly timeless (tacky pun intended!) in its appeal. Even if I'm not crazy about it I can appreciate the unique design and the fact that it really doesn't look like it was originally born 50 years ago. £196
Via Retro To Go
Aimed at a younger market than the usual camping trailer crowd, this Design Within Reach Airstream comes with some additional accessories and modifications that make it a little trendier and more appealing to the "mobile young modernist" consumer. Among featured items there's a Nelson Ball clock, Heller Dinnerware place settings for 4, recessed lighting, a skylight, a Tom Dixon Wire Coat Rack, and of course a furnished kitchen area, lavatory, and shower. The fun stuff doesn't stop there, with panoramic windows, a fabric awning, Tripolina chairs, a Sony sound system and TV, and (deep breath) the list just keeps going and going. Want one of your own? No problem, but it'll cost you $49,066.
