    George Nelson Associates Nelson Crisscross Saucer Pendant Lamp
    Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Miller’s design director from 1946 to 1972, said: “Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” And then he blew the doors off lighting design. When Nelson was outfitting his office, he coveted a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp but found it prohibitively expensive. He then recalled seeing a photo in the paper of Liberty ships being mothballed “by having the decks covered with netting and then being sprayed with a self-webbing plastic,” said Nelson. “And then, Whammo!” Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp® (1947), using a spray coating of translucent plastic polymer over a skeleton of steel wire. “When you put a light in it, it glowed.” A wide range of shapes and sizes are now available. UL Listed. Bulb (not included): incandescent 150W/120V/E26/A21 max. Made in U.S.A.

    Nelson Pear Pendant Lamp - Medium
    Trained as an architect, George Nelson found a fresh solution to lighting design in the organic forms of his "bubble" lamps. The lamps were produced in 1952 by spray coating a skeleton of steel wire with a layer of translucent plastic that allowed light to shine softly through and protected the eye from glare. The tautly stretched plastic emphasizes the simple forms and sculptural qualities of the lamps. UL-listed. Bulb not included: Incandescent 150W/120V/E26/A21. Made in U.S.A.

    Nelson Ball Pendant Lamp - Medium
    In 1947, when George Nelson embarked on the task of decorating his newly opened office in mid-town Manhattan, he found the silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted to be prohibitively expensive. So he decided to design his own. The "bubble" lamps, as they were called, were first introduced in 1950 by the Howard Miller Company (brother of Herman Miller, Howard Miller also first launched Nelson's renowned series of clocks). Using a spray coating of translucent plastic polymer over a skeleton of steel wire, Nelson created an alternative to traditional pendants and chandeliers, offering large-scale, diffuse lighting for all size and manner of interiors. A wide range of shapes and sizes are now available. Bulb (not included): incandescent 150W/120V/E26/A21. Made in U.S.A.
