A soft radiance

Light and luminous

The Nelson Cigar Bubble Pendant casts a soft, even light as it is hung from the ceiling with the help of a plate and a 6 foot long cord. It is available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes. The origin of these lamps was in 1952, when Nelson was inspired by 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, making them available at a modest price.
