Design George Nelson, 1952 Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic, solid walnut Made in USA by Herman Miller
Part of the Nelson Bubble Lamp series, the Nelson Pear Wall Sconce has a shape that flares at the center. A walnut wall mount and steel arm attach the pear-shaped lampshade to a wall, filling any interior with a warm, diffused light. The arm can be adjusted left to right and up and down, without having to change its position on the wall.
The Nelson Pear Wall Sconce features a 2-inch-thick, solid walnut wall-mount, a steel arm that extends out, and a 12-foot plug-in cord. A swivel hinge in the arm allows for easy height adjustments. The Nelson Bubble Lamps were originally designed in 1952 when George Nelson 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
