George Nelson Bubble Lamp - Wall Sconce



First designed in 1947, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Collection has stood the test of time.  The simple structural shapes with the innovative use of taut plastic over fine steel wire were born from George Nelson's frustration to buy a Swedish-made silk lamp which produced a soft light.  This unique use of shape and material produces a diffused light that is free of glare while offering an abundance of illumination.  These pieces are part of the permanent collection in the Museum of Modern Art in New York and remain icons in modern lighting.

Herman Miller now uses George Nelson's original materials and methods to hand craft each piece. 

The George Nelson Bubble Lamp Wall Sconce is cleverly designed to allow the lamp to be adjusted right or left and up or down.  The lamp is attached to the wall with a 2 inch thick walnut mount and the brushed nickel arm extends from the wall a generous 14 inches.  The 12 foot long cord is counter balanced which allow the light to be moved up or down easily.  Available in your choice of Saucer, Ball, Cigar, or Pear shape.
