As a truly multi-talented designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His Zoo Timers – colorful personalities from the animal kingdom – contrast sharply with his sculptural wall clocks from the 1950’s thanks to their graphic touch. The Zoo Timers offer a playful and enjoyable approach to telling the time. These clocks are produced from the original design documents from the Nelson archive with the blessings of the George Nelson estate.
