Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Extra Large Bell Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary.
George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1947. These lamps with their simple sculptural shapes are constructed of an innovative taut
plastic that coats a steel wire-frame.
Nelson's unique design and ingenious use of materials prove to eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light. A quality which alone is unique to this material.
From the forming of the wire-frame, to the spraying of the vinyl form, one-by-one, each Bubble Lamp is constructed to last decades and each
Bubble Lamp is built to George Nelson’s original specifications.
The George Nelson Net Light® series was released in 1959 and less than 1000 were ever produced. Today, only a scarce few of the original Net Lights survive.
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.
