The Vitra Cone Clock was designed in the 1950s by George Nelson. It is made out of black and white polyurethane and contains a high-quality quartz clock movement. It features a conical casing with a sculptural triangular wire base. Minimum use of colours makes the clock an elegant and beautiful decorative object to suit any style of decor.

In 1947, the American designer George Nelson was commissioned to create a collection of clocks. Nelson analysed how people used clocks and concluded that they read the time by discerning the relative position of the hands, which made the use of numbers unnecessary.

These ideas provided the basis for the first collection of 14 timepieces, consisting of a completely new style of wall clocks and compact table clocks, which were launched on the market in 1949. Although the models all shared one common feature – the absence of numbers – the diversity of their shapes, colours, materials and designs could hardly have been greater.
