The Vitra Chronopak table clock was designed in the 1950s by George Nelson. The Chronopak table clock features a striking combination of a walnut wood exterior with a black face and solid brass base. The clock is both sturdy and reliable as well as an elegant object to decorate your desk area. Its carefully designed rounded form attracts the eye and is complimented with a uniquely styled hour hand and hour markers.

In 1947, the American designer George Nelson was commissioned to create a collection of clocks. Nelson analysed how people used clocks and concluded that they read the time by discerning the relative position of the hands, which made the use of numbers unnecessary.

These ideas provided the basis for the first collection of 14 timepieces, consisting of a completely new style of wall clocks and compact table clocks, which were launched on the market in 1949. Although the models all shared one common feature – the absence of numbers – the diversity of their shapes, colours, materials and designs could hardly have been greater.
