George Nelson's Vitra watch collection was born from the study of how people usually use these common objects. The result was that most people read the time by observing the position of the hands, and not the numbers. Moreover, given the diffusion of wrist watches, for many, wall watches had more of a decorative function than a real one. In 1947, the design began which led in 1949 to the launch on the market of this new innovative line with respect to the paradigm of the time. Star Clock alternates long metal rays along its entire circumference, dissecting the dials with simple and elegant lines.

Swiss by birth, Vitra is a unique company in many ways. Unique in its home collections, light and colorful; unique in its office furnishings, which combine in a masterful implementation design and ergonomics; unique for the designer parterre that enriches its catalog. Among prestigious historical re-enactments and fruitful collaborations, Vitra has always had the ability to relive the past and project to the future. However, Vitra is unique above all for Rolf Fehlbaum's corporate address, where the company transcends the business to fulfill wider social and cultural functions: the creation of a unique project such as Vitra Campus and the annexed Vitra Design Museum is an example.Read more
George Nelson (1908-1986) is considered a key figure in the development and promotion of the "design culture" in the United States. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, in his youth he had the opportunity to travel extensively around Europe and to approach the principles of modernist architecture, of which he became one of the most passionate advocates in the United States through his articles for Architectural Forum magazine. And it was precisely after reading one of those articles that D.J. De Pree, president of Hermann Miller, decided to revolutionize his company and move from creating traditional wooden furniture to design furniture. Nelson was called in 1947 to fill the role of artistic director of the company and remained there until 1972, adding to his creations those of young emerging designers called by him to create their first works. He introduced to the world of industry what would later become the elite of American design, from Charles & Ray Eames to Isamu Noguchi, from Harry Bertoia to Alexander Girard. His intelligent and creative furnishings can in some ways be considered forerunners of the “pop style” and have also been produced by Vitra since 1958.Read more
