Vitra Multicolor Ball Clock

Time for an icon. George Nelson and his associates designed many celebrated clocks in the 50s and 60s, but the 1949 Ball Clock is arguably the most iconic. Not only timeless in appeal, the Ball Clock keeps time with internal high-quality quartz clockwork. The clever design craved by both mid-century purists and dabblers in modern design features wood balls, likely influenced by the atomic discussions prevalent in that time. The balls are painted with cheerfully colored acrylic lacquers that allows the natural wood grain to subtly show through. A white face keeps a sleek look and the signature clock hands (hour and minute) quietly tick around. Vitra is the only manufacturer authorized to produce the Ball Clock, so you can be sure your Ball Clock is authentic.
