In sharp contract to the Eye Clock and other George Nelson clocks we’ve featured previously, the renowned designer also produced a range of clocks for children, the Zoo Timers.
Although also manufactured by Vitra, they could not be more different from his other clocks. These designs showcase Nelson’s talent as a graphic designer and reflect the more playful design trends of the 1960s. There are four in the series, each one a brightly coloured cartoon animal. Pictured here is Talulah the Toucan, but you can also choose from Omar the Owl, Fernando the Fish or Elihu the Elephant.
They are available from Nest priced around £75 each.
