The Turbine Clock by George Nelson for Vitra is another example of an everyday item which embodies the joie de vivre of the 1950s, using an industrial design idea adapted for a simple clock. This, together with the diversity of materials used and their sculptural shapes, was the start of a whole new era challenging the conventional design principles which had preceded it.
