Vitra has manufactured furniture designs by Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson since 1957. Building on this foundation, Vitra has developed a wide range of furnishings for the office, for the home and for public spaces in collaboration with progressive designers. Yet Vitra is more than just a design-oriented manufacturing company. The name also stands for the Vitra Design Museum, for a collection of modern furniture and its accompanying archive, for workshops and publications on topics of design, and for an architectural concept that unites buildings by Frank Gehry, Nicholas Grimshaw, Zaha Hadid, Tadao Ando, Alvaro Siza, Herzog & de Meuron and SANAA at the Vitra Headquarters in Birsfelden (Switzerland) and on the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein (Germany). Product longevity is central to Vitra's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection. For Vitra, the manufacture of sustainable products means intense pre-production development, where the highest-grade materials are selected and tests are carried out that simulate 15 years of use. In order to enforce and monitor sustainable development in all business activities of the company, a work group was formed in 1986 by the name of 'Vitra and the Environment'. Because of this, Vitra can proudly claim that it has been dedicated to sustainability for nearly a quarter of a century.

Nelson Ball Clock is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't keep the time even with the new batteries. Looks nice on the wall, but doesn't show correct time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Order it and out of the box it didn't keep time. They very nicely sent a second one and it worked for 2 days. So disappointed! So disappointed. It looked great out of the box and when I put it on the wall, I was so happy. Then I noticed the second hand wasn't moving. They sent a second click and it stopped working after 2 days. I give up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife and I love our new Ball clock. The Nelson Ball clock keeps perfect time. It looks terrific in our family room. Matches our new round bulb lights well. We are now searching for a round light for our entry hall. Any suggestions togo with the Ball clock? [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ballclock The product arrived in a box which had been crushed and had a large gash in it. Sadly the clock is bent out of shape. I have chosen not to hang it but I am trying to get it returned. Incredible that a delivery service had the cheek to leave this on my doorstep [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
