George Nelson (1908–1986) was an American industrial designer and one of the early pioneers of American Mid-Century Modernism. George was more than a product designer. He was an icon of the modern movement. He was also a key figure of American design, together with the likes of Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard. With nearly 50 years of designing, he created and promoted a remarkable collection of modern home furnishings including furniture, lighting and clocks. From 1946 onwards Nelson ran his own design office, creating products that are now regarded as icons of mid-century modernism like the Ball Clock (1947), the Bubble Pendants (starting in 1952) and the Night Mantle Clock (1984).
