Design George Nelson, 1952 Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic, brushed metal base Made in USA by Herman Miller
Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Cigar Lotus Table Lamp has a rounded shape with clean parallel lines accentuating its elongated sphere. Mounted on a steel base, the lamp disperses a soft light. George Nelson, inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps, designed the series in 1952.
Use with up to 150 watt bulb. Light bulb not included.
The Cigar Lotus Table Lamp brings this classic George Nelson design to a table setting. Its elegant lampshade is set on a steel base that is available with or without a walnut cover, and an easy-to-use on/off pull chain with a solid walnut end. The lamp also includes an 86-inch plug-in cord. The Nelson Bubble Lamps were first designed in 1952 when Nelson was inspired by set of Swedish hanging lamps. Their expensive price prompted Nelson to make his own set, and he arrived at an innovative process that replaced their silk shade with a translucent plastic material, making them available at a modest price.
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Herman Miller is the official site for the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Collection.
