The Nelson Saucer Crisscross Bubble Pendant is part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series. Inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps, George Nelson designed the series in 1952. Beyond the soft light this lamp casts, it features a unique crisscross pattern that adds an interesting contour to the shade.

All sizes, except small, use with up to 150 watt bulb. For the small size, use with up to 60 watt bulb. Light bulb not included. Hardwiring required.

Elegant Form, Soft Light

A classic George Nelson design, the Nelson Saucer Crisscross Bubble Pendant has a bisecting pattern in its understructure, which gives the lampshade a lovely contour. This pendant light comes with a 6 foot long cord that allows it to be attached to a ceiling plate, and delicately hover overhead. Nelson first designed the Bubble Lamps in 1952, when he came across a set of Swedish hanging lamps that he admired. Their expensive price prompted Nelson to design 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.
