The Vitra Cone Base Clock was designed in the 1950s by George Nelson. It has a characterful odd size ratio between face and base which brings a playful aesthetic to the design. The colour contrast between clock face and hour and minute hands makes this clock easier to read and more practical. The clock is constructed with a powder-coated sheet metal casing and is equipped with a high-quality quartz movement. It is a utilitarian design with a finely crafted minimalist appeal to suit any style of interior design.

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.
