Petal Clock


While it was made back in 1957 (by NYC’s George Nelson Associates for the Howard Miller Clock Company), the Petal Clock is as beautiful today as it ever was. Inspired by a four-leaf clover, this authentic Nelson clock (now archived in the the Vitra Design Museum, along with Nelson’s other inventive designs like the joyful ball clock) is a simple and bold piece of American modernism.
