Nelson Sunburst Clock

I read some authors with the same pleasure every year and I find them more present than the modern writers and this is due to their wonderful ability to foreseen future and to see things clearly, which will lead to the same thing in the future. Any way, the bottom line is that some items are made long time ago but still they are considered more attractive than ever and they feel very contemporary, too. This is such a thing I am talking about : the Nelson Sunburst Clock. It is stylish and modern and designed by a very creative person who just couldn’t stand to have empty walls.

This clock is made of wood and metal with acrylic lacquer finish and looks so interesting, just like a “sun burst”. This clock was designed in 1948 by the famous American designer called George Nelson and has been very popular ever since. The clock is very simple in design, yet it is vividly coloured and shows modernism and vitality. It is a special clock that , if hung on the wall, can change the general view of your living room at once. Even if Nelson is now dead, he still allows us to enjoy his works and they are more present-like than ever. The clocks are now manufactured by Vitra and can be bought for $420.
