Design George Nelson, 1952
Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic
Made in USA by Herman Miller
Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Pear Bubble Pendant recalls the fruit’s shape in the way it flares towards the center. The parallel lines of the lamp’s lightweight steel frame are visible along its surface. The lamp casts a soft, even light. George Nelson designed the Bubble Lamp series in 1952.
Light and Luminous
Variations of an essentially spherical form, the Bubble Lamp series is a distinguished and timeless George Nelson design. The Nelson Pear Bubble Pendant has an accentuated flare towards the center and delicately floats overhead. This pendant light is available in two sizes: small and medium. In 1952, a set of Swedish hanging lamps were introduced into the American market and George Nelson was impressed enough to want one for his office. A price tag of $125, steep at the time, prevented him from buying one but it also inspired him to design his own. Soon after, a collection of pendants, sconces, tripods, table, and floor lamps were born.
