Together with Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson (1908-1986) was one of the founding fathers of American modernism. Born in Hartford Connecticut in 1908, Nelson was part of a generation of architects who revolutionised product, graphic and interior design transforming everyday objects into works of art.
The Bubble Lamps, with their iconic sculptural shapes, were designed by George Nelson in 1947. They are constructed of an innovative taut plastic that coats a steel wire-frame. Nelson’s unique design and ingenious use of materials eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light; A quality unique to this material.
Each lamp comes with a 5.25-inch brushed, nickel-plated steel ceiling plate. All sizes come with 6-feet of cord, with the exception of the extra-large which comes with 9-feet. The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is also featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
