A Beautiful Curve
Shaped like its namesake, the Apple Bubble Pendant adds charm and warmth to interiors with its rounded silhouette and soft, even light. It comes with a steel ceiling plate and a 6 foot long cord that allow this pendant light to be affixed to the ceiling. George Nelson first designed the Bubble Lamps in 1952, when he came across a Swedish hanging lamp that he wanted to acquire for his office. Challenged by the expensive price, he decided to make his own. The result was a series of pendants, sconces, tripods, table, and floor lamps that complement a variety of settings.
