George Nelson began his design for what became the Swag Leg Group with the simple desire to create furniture with a sculptured leg. Beyond beauty, he sought practicality, insisting that the legs be made of metal, machine formed and pre-finished. The Nelson Swag Leg Group is a revival of an historic collection by George Nelson. Introduced in 1958, the group's evocative pieces have a look, scale, and function that are simply right for today. These classic, sculpted designs can be used individually or together in the home or office, from meeting spaces to offices and dining areas.Constructed from a wide array of materials while showcasing their sculptural shapes, these wall clocks are a vast departure from the ordinary and prosaic wall clock. Featuring the bold and impressive modern design of George Nelson, these wall clocks ascended into popularity in the 1950s and still resonate with many people who are looking for an alternative from the mundane timekeepers. With their meticulous attention to detail in the pursuit of true-to-original form, The Vitra Design Museum is presenting a re-edition of the Eye Wall Clock made with a distinguished brass and walnut finish.
