Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Pear Lotus Floor Lamp has a shape that flares at the center. Affixed to a steel lamp stand, with or without walnut cover, it illuminates any room with a soft, warm glow. George Nelson designed the series in 1952. He was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps.

A Beautiful Curve
With a beautifully flared lampshade and a stable steel base, the Nelson Pear Lotus Floor Lamp has a tall, sculptural presence. It is available in two sizes to complement interiors of different sizes. George Nelson first designed them in 1952, when he came across a Swedish hanging lamp that he wanted to acquire for his office. He was challenged by the expensive price and decided to make his own. The result was a series of elemental, spherical shapes like a rounded apple, a wide saucer, an elongated cigar, and a shapely pear, among others.
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.
