Vitra's Ceramic Clocks were designed in the 1950's by George Nelson. These Ceramic Clocks combine geometric and organic shapes in a way that is both playful and sculptural, evoking associations with 3D works by artists such as Constantin Brancusi or Isamu Noguchi. For unknown reasons, the Ceramic Clocks were never mass-produced, though designed and fully developed in the early 1950s. Using the original plans and prototype as a basis, Vitra has produced a new edition of the Ceramic Clocks in porcelain, finished in a variety of coloured glazes and fitted with a modern quartz movement.

These cheerful table clocks are available in two versions.
