Eye Clock!

A week ago my parents, Dustin and I went to a mid century modern warehouse sale in the Chicago suburbs. Through some clever dealing, my parents acquired me this George Nelson Eye Clock. I have wanted this clock since I learned of its existence. This particular picture of someone’s collection of Nelson clocks stuck with me too:

This clock is now hanging near our Hang-It-All, with some space left for an art poster Dustin has his eye on. So, more pictures in situ I’m sure will be forthcoming.
My dad just got a George Nelson Pill Clock that I’ve seen pictures of but can’t wait to see in person. I love these clocks, so many of them are amazing. I wish Vitra was still producing more of the designs. George Nelson’s wiki page claims he designed nearly 300 wall clocks, I wonder if that’s true? Someone needs to make a book about them, if there isn’t one already…
