George Nelson Sunburst Clock Walnut
Designed by: George Nelson Associates
This is how designer George Nelson recounts the birth of the sunburst clock: 'And there was one night when the ball clock got developed... Noguchi came by, and Bucky Fuller came by... we started making doodles. Then Bucky sort of brushed Noguchi aside. He said, 'This is a good way to do a clock,' and he made some utterly absurd thing. Everybody was taking a crack at it, pushing each other aside and making scribbles.... and the next morning there was this roll of drafting paper and somewhere in this roll there was the ball clock."
So this festive evening of collaboration brought to the world this beautiful sunny clock. This replica is reproduced from from the original design documents from the Nelson archive with the blessings of the George Nelson estate.
