George Nelson Eye clock from Vitra

When something is really interesting and out of the ordinary you say that it “catches your eye”. Well, if you take a look at this wall clock it will certainly catch your eye. This unusual but really interesting clock is called the Eye clock because it has the shape of an eye. The designer George Nelson was inspired by the nice shape of the human eye and created this wall clock  some time back in the ’50s and now it is manufactured by the European company Vitra.


Even if now these clocks are manufactured in Europe, they are still retailed in America, where their creator, George Nelson was born and raised. He was in fact one of the forefathers of American modern design and you can find many of his works in the Modern art museums in America and all over the world.

This clock is more than half a century old, but still stylish and it will never go out of fashion, bringing a special style to the house with its originality. It is made of wood and metal, with the middle wooden bar stand for the “backbone” of the whole structure, supporting all the other elements. The black round piece in the middle stands for the eye pupil and the lines that represent the hours stand for the eye lashes. It is very ingenious and creative and you can now purchase it for $481 on Amazon or $405 on Stardust.
