Design George Nelson, 1952
Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic
Made in USA by Herman Miller
Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Pear Tripod Lamp has a shape that flares at the center. Set on a tripod, it illuminates any room in a soft, warm glow. George Nelson designed the Bubble Lamp series in 1952. He was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps.
The Nelson Pear Tripod Lamp comes in two sizes and with a steel tripod stand that allows it be placed in a variety of settings, and a convenient 7.5-foot plug-in cord. Available in charming spherical silhouettes, the Nelson Bubble Lamps add a touch of softness and luminosity to interiors. In 1952, Nelson was impressed by a set of Swedish hanging lamps that were crafted with a silk covering. 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 complements contemporary interiors as easily and beautifully as they did mid-century homes.
