The Nelson Lantern Bubble Pendant is part of the Nelson Bubble Lamps, a series of lights in elegant, spherical silhouettes.

A Soft Radiance

The simple and elegant shape of a traditional lantern shade made contemporary, the Nelson Lantern Bubble Pendant delicately hangs overhead with the help of a 6-foot cord and ceiling plate. George Nelson designed the Bubble Lamps In 1952. He was inspired by a set of Swedish hanging lamps that were tediously crafted with a silk covering. The bigger challenge, however, was their expensive price. Nelson decided to make his own set, and arrived at an innovative process that replaced the silk shade with a translucent plastic material.

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.
