Designed by George Nelson for Vitra
Nelson Sunburst Clock
Price reduced from C$ 630.00 to C$ 535.50


The Sunburst Clock (1949) is one of more than 150 clocks designed by George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company, which sold them from 1949 into the 1980s. Nelson Associates, first launched as a studio by George Nelson in 1947 in New York City, employed some of the most celebrated designers of the time, including Irving Harper, Don Ervin and Charles Pollock, all of whom contributed to the clocks. Until its closure in the mid-1980s, the company designed a range of products for many clients, including Herman Miller, Inc., which was established in 1923 by Howard Miller’s brother-in-law, D.J. De Pree. A bit of family history: De Pree also founded the Herman Miller Clock Company in 1926 but turned it over in 1937 to Howard, who renamed it. As for the identity of Herman Miller, he was Howard’s father and De Pree’s father-in-law. The Miller companies are not affiliated but stand across the street from one another in Zeeland, Mich. The Sunburst Clock appeared in the original Miller brochure as Model 2202. This is an authentic Nelson Clock, produced by Vitra Design Museum. Uses one AA battery (included). Made in Poland.

George Nelson

Possessing one of the most inventive minds of the 20th century, George Nelson was the rare person who can envision what isn’t there yet. Nelson felt that designers must be “aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society and thus cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.”

Beautiful mid century design. Well built. Looks great on our wall.

Beautiful and High Quality!
We looked at one of these for a long time before purchasing one. It is very well constructed metal feels very substantial for a wall clock. The mechanism is silent which makes a big difference when it's in the same room you sleep!

I love this clock!
Item is exactly as pictured---and I have to say how impressed I am with it. Shipped and packaged perfectly--- You can tell the quality of a clock by it's movement---and for a quartz movement---it's SILENT! Usually you hear the click click click every second, but not this clock. Beautiful - if you love mid-century modern, and appreciate quality--you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended!

Real wood colorful artwork of good size and very functional.
I purchased this for my son who had been talking about this clock for a couple of years but could not purchase it until recently. He was gratefully surprised and thought it was so well made and sturdy. We hung the clock in the living room on the dominant wall as our 1st piece of mid century modern artwork. It keeps accurate time and looks so nice in the middle of the wall above the couch.

Like a piece of art
I'm using this clock as both a decorative and functional piece; it's like a piece of artwork. Easy to mount and very beautiful. Be very careful with the fragile hands and handle per the instructions.
