Designer: George Nelson, 1965 Manufacturer: Vitra, Germany
As a truly multi-talentent designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His Zoo Timers – strongly colourful personalities from the animal kingdom – contrast sharply with his sculptural wall clocks from the 1950s thanks to their graphic touch. The Zoo Timers offer children a playful and enjoyable approach to telling the time. Collection Vitra Design Museum.
