Elegant form, soft light

As elemental as light

A classic George Nelson design, the Nelson Bubble Lamps bring warmth to any interior with their various spherical shapes and soft, even light. The Nelson Pear Crisscross Bubble Pendant’s flared shape is further accentuated with a pattern of intersecting lines in its understructure. It is available in two sizes, small and medium, each with a 6-foot cord, to illuminate spaces of different sizes. George Nelson designed the Bubble Lamps in 1952. He was inspired by a Swedish hanging lamp that he wanted to acquire for his office. The steep price tag, for that time, prompted Nelson to design his own, and the result was a series of lamps with elemental, spherical shapes like a rounded apple, an elongated cigar, and a shapely pear, among others.
