Zoo Timers

As a truly multi-talented designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His hand-drawn Zoo Timers – children's wall clocks in the form of colourful characters from the animal kingdom – contrast sharply with his sculptural wall clocks from the 1950s. The Zoo Timers offer children a playful and enjoyable approach to telling the time.
