A good while back I came across this kitschy, retro cutting board while making a sandwich in the office kitchen.
I knew I'd seen that design somewhere, but just couldn't recall the source and it nagged at me for months.
"As a truly multi-talentent 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."
That is until I came upon this thumbnail and description on the Vitra website.
A Japanese cutting board knockoff of a George Nelson "Zoo Timer" clock? How strange and unexpected.
