Designed by George Nelson
Nelson Saucer Crisscross Bubble Pendant
Elegant form, soft light
As elemental as light
A classic George Nelson design, the Nelson Saucer Crisscross Bubble Pendant has a bisecting pattern in its understructure, which gives the lampshade a lovely contour. This pendant light comes with a 1.8-metre-long cord that allows it to be attached to a ceiling plate, and delicately hover overhead. Nelson first designed the Bubble Lamps in 1952, when he came across a set of Swedish hanging lamps that he admired. Their expensive price prompted Nelson to design his own. The result was a series of elemental, spherical shapes like a rounded apple, a wide saucer, an elongated cigar and a shapely pear, among others.
