Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Apple Bubble Pendant has a clean, rounded symmetry. It comes with a ceiling plate, from where it floats overhead, casting a soft, even light. George Nelson designed the series in 1952. He was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps.
Use with up to 150 watt bulb. Light bulb not included. Hardwiring required.
Shaped like its namesake, the Apple Bubble Pendant adds charm and warmth to interiors with its rounded silhouette and soft, even light. It comes with a steel ceiling plate and a 6 foot long cord that allow this pendant light to be affixed to the ceiling. George Nelson first designed the Bubble Lamps in 1952, when he came across a Swedish hanging lamp that he wanted to acquire for his office. Challenged by the expensive price, he decided to make his own. The result was a series of pendants, sconces, tripods, table, and floor lamps that complement a variety of settings.
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Herman Miler is the official site for the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Collection.
