Designed by George Nelson in 1955
Around 1950 the United States was characterized by a firm belief in progress accompanied by a lasting economic boom. Anything seemed possible and everybody wanted to be modern. With a view to bringing modern design right into the American home, George Nelson designed a range of products offering a new and unconventional interpretation of such everyday items as lamps, wall clocks, and other domestic accessories. And right into the 1970s Nelson's New York design studio continued to produce a multitude of designs such as the "Bubble Lamp" and the "Ball Clock", items which have now become icons of mid-century design.
