George N. Star Clock

The Star Clock by George N. has a light, industrial profile that will infuse a Modernist flair to any space. It was one of many innovative 1950s pieces N. created to modernise the US home. This was much in tune with the spirit of the time, which was all about progress and prosperity. The iconic Star Clock from 1955 exudes minimalist charm and is still highly sought-after today. Its sleek lines make it a versatile and perfect accompaniment to any modern setting.

ItaliaDesigns produces the Star Clock with a mechanism housed in aluminium, while the body of the clock is made out of alternating chrome and copper spindles.

About the Designer

George N.

George N.

George Nelson (1908-1986) was, together with Charles & Ray Eames, one of the founding fathers of American modernism. We like to think of George Nelson as "The Creator of Beautiful and Practical Things". George Nelson was part of a generation of architects that found too few projects and turned successfully toward product, graphic and interior design. Based in Rome he travelled through Europe where he met a number of the modernist pioneers. A few years later he returned to the U.S.A. to devote himself to writing. Through his writing in "Pencil Points" he introduced Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Gio Ponti to North America. At "Architectural Forum" he was first associate editor (1935- 1943) an later consultant editor (1944-1949). He defended sometimes ferociously the modernist principles and irritated many of his colleagues who as "industrial designers" made, according to Nelson too many concessions to the commercial forces in industry.
