George Nelson Steering Wheel Clock
The 1960 Steering Wheel clock succeeds at design intrigue and sophistication. Another unintended success as the years have passed, is that the clock by its nature of original design, now tells the story of the era of time of its creation.
Modernist Icon Of Time
The steering wheel clock embodies what some referral to as a nautical design. No doubt it is the mind recalling imagery of the wheelhouse of a marine going vessel. George intended the design not nautical but rather of a common Automobile steering wheel of the day. George was known for pulling the everyday experiences into the conscious presence with design. Something that would have been seen so many times without much attention being given, a steering wheel, would now be gazed upon with intrigue in rooms all across the world. Art is in everything, it is simply the shift in awareness that allows us to realize and appreciate.
The 1960 Steering Wheel clock succeeds at design intrigue and sophistication. George Nelson was opening perceptions with design. The steering wheel clock takes what may be considered a mundane part of existence and calls to awareness the beauty in its design by placing it in our living spaces as a functioning piece of art. Another unintended success as the years have passed, is that the clock by its nature of original design, now tells the story of the era of time of its creation. The steering wheel is reminiscent of the design functionality of the cars of the late 50’s and early 60’s. The peak of the mid century modern design era. No designer was able to evoke the retro aura of designer wall clocks like George. In fairness, he had a bit of practice. He created over 150 designs for the Howard Miller company during the mid century years. We all have a need to know the time, but it does not mean timekeeping has to be boring. Why not do it in mid century classic George Nelson style?
