George Nelson is a famous designer who is best known for being one of the fathers of American Modernism. He held notable positions in all branches of the design world; working working as an industrial designer, an architect, and most notably, an editor for the Architectural Forum.
His designs spanned the entire spectrum: from clocks to furniture to lighting. He often used simple designs and bright colors to make his designs pop.This can be seen very clearly in his clock designs, which used geometric sunburst designs. Now, a lot of his designs are reproduced in additional color sets and sizes, while maintaining the original aesthetic. Vitra is currently the licence holder to the George Nelson name, but many other reproductions can be found.
