History of the Designer, George NelsonAt the beginning of his career, like many of the architects of his time, George Nelson was a man in need of a project. Building design unfortunately was not in high demand however, and so he turned to interiors design, graphic art, and furnishings. His clock and furniture designs became icons of the 1950s and 60s, both in the home and in corporate offices.George Nelson, one of the founding fathers of American Modernism was born in 1908. His path began while avoiding a rainstorm. Nelson ducked into the architecture school building to stay dry. It was then that he stumbled across an exhibit called “A Cemetery Gateway”. After, unfolded his interest and progression in the field of architecture. The then chairman of Herman Miller discovered Nelson while reading an article on “The Tomorrow House” in a design rag named “Pencil Points”. A year later George went to work for Herman Miller. One notable accomplishment was his idea to create a cleaner city in design as well as a reduction in pollution be it audio, visual or chemical. The outdoor malls in many suburbs of the U.S are in large part a result of his ambition. Some

George Nelson Turbine Clock -64%

This wall clock's iconic, late 50’s design, was imagined and executed in 1957 by George Nelson, one of the fathers of 20th century Modern Design. Its bright copper spiked “leaves” appear to move in both a clock-wise and counter-clock-wise motion. The dynamic shapes and proportions of Nelson’s design were the inspiration for Kardiel’s version; this timeless timepiece can be hanging on your wall for a fraction of an “official reproductions” cost. The Turbine Clock body hovers 3.75” off wall Lacquered Die Cut Steel body Aluminum mechanical clock housing Polished Aluminum Clock Face 12 Polished 100% Pure Copper Turbine blades represent hours of the day Consistent & accurate Quartz Movement Mechanism Architecturally accurate dimensions Overall Clock Measures: 30" diameter and 3 ¾" deep Requires Battery: 1 x AAAbout Our images: Kardiel does not use generic nor stock furniture images.

As time passes, the hands sweep in a clockwise motion against the counter clockwise facing blades. The timeless Nelson Turbine Clock was as brilliant a design in 1950 as it is now.The George Nelson designs have become iconic over the years.

George Nelson Style Walnut Ball Clock -47%

The Walnut wood series Ball Clock is a sophisticated take on the original multi colored whimsical design. The calm feeling of natural wood is combined with the pop art style creating an interesting juxtaposition of funky pop art and elegant design. Size: 13? Diameter Clock body hovers 2.75” off wall Aluminum mechanical clock housing Architecturally correct Solid Walnut wood hour balls Hour & minute hands painted die cut steel fabricated to original proportion Consistent and accurate Quartz Movement Mechanism Ivory White painted aluminum center clock face True to original black hour & minute hand with retro oval & triangle design Solid Brass connecting hour spindles Solid copper internal components Requires 1 AA battery for operation (included) About the Design George Nelson was not a man too proud to own up to drunken drawing. Speaking of a night of partying and doodling with his architect friends, he admitted that he probably wasn’t truly the designer of the Ball clock with which he is credited. “…we’d had a little bit too much to drink- and the next morning I came back, and here was this roll (of drafting paper), and Irving and I looked at it, and somewhere in this roll there was a ball clock. I don’t know to this day who cooked it up.”Probably the most recognizable clock of the George Nelson design collection, the Ball is a definitive icon of its time. It is best described as atomic retro wall art, and makes a clever space impression, particularly if other modern classics occupy the room. The multi-colored balls are as reminiscent of the 1950’s as poodle skirts, soda jerks, and car hops. No designer was able to evoke the retro aura of designer wall clocks like George. In fairness, he had a bit of practice. He created over 150 designs for the Howard Miller company during the mid century years.

George Nelson Steering Wheel Clock -50%

The steering wheel clock embodies what some referral to as a nautical design. No doubt it is the mind recalling imagery of the wheelhouse of a marine going vessel. George intended the design not nautical but rather of a common Automobile steering wheel of the day. George was known for pulling the everyday experiences into theconscious presence with design. Something that would have been seen so many times without much attention being given, a steering wheel, would now be gazed upon with intrigue in rooms all across the world.

George Nelson was opening perceptions with design. The steering wheel clock takes what may be considered a mundane part of existence and calls to awareness the beauty in its design by placing it in our living spaces as a functioning piece of art. Another unintended success as the years have passed, is that the clock by its nature of original design, now tells the story of the era of time of its creation. The steering wheel is reminiscent of the design functionality of the cars of the late 50’s and early 60’s.
