These fantastic children's clocks - or 'Zoo Timers' - designed by George Nelson for Vitra make time telling fun.

As a truly multi-talented designer, George Nelson was also successful as a graphic designer. His Zoo Timers - strongly colourful personalities from the animal kingdom - contrast sharply with his sculptural wall clocks from the 1950s thanks to their graphic touch.

The Zoo Timers offer children a playful and enjoyable approach to telling the time.

Zoo Timers are part of the Collection Vitra Design Museum and there are three in the range - Omar the Owl, Fernando The Fish and Elihu The Elephant.
