Design George Nelson, 1952 Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic. Made in USA by Herman Miller
The Nelson Ball Bubble Pendant is a full, perfectly round sphere that fills any interior with a warm, diffused light. A ceiling plate allows it to delicately float overhead. George Nelson was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps when he originally designed the Bubble Lamp series in 1952.
Use with up to 150 watt bulb. Light bulb not included. Hardwiring required.
As Elemental as Light
In charming spherical silhouettes, the Nelson Bubble Lamps add a touch of softness and luminosity to interiors. The Ball Bubble Pendant is available in three sizes and its perfectly rounded form is attached to a ceiling plate with a 6 foot long cord. The Bubble Lamps were first designed in 1952, when Nelson was impressed by a set of Swedish hanging lamps. Their prohibitive price prompted Nelson to design his own in a way that made them more affordable. This timeless collection of pendants, sconces, tripods, table, and floor lamps complement contemporary interiors as easily and beautifully as they did mid-century homes.
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.
