Detailed Description


A mid-century classic icon, the Bubble Lamp was first designed by George Nelson in 1947 and was produced by Howard Miller starting in the early 1950s and ending in 1979. Modernica, our licensed supplier, has reissued the George Nelson Bubble Lamps to the original specifications, using the original Howard Miller tooling. These famous lamps are presently a part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

It was in 1947 that George Nelson discovered a self webbing material used to preserve ships in New York. He became convinced that the translucent material would be perfect to create lamps which were organic in design. He made a metal frame, tracked down the source of the webbing material and then created a large glowing sphere and named it the Bubble Lamp. Nelson made many variations to the original shape. These include Saucer, Ball, Cigar, Apple, Pear, Criss Cross, Lantern and Propeller. The George Nelson Bubble Lamp collection includes desk lamps, pendant lamps, sconce lamps and floor lamps all available on this website exclusively manufactured by Modernica.

Besides the Bubble Lamp, George Nelson was a prolific designer who fashioned a range of products offering new and modern takes on furniture, wall clocks, desk clocks and more. Many of Nelsons creations, such as the George Nelson Clocks, are now reissued by Vitra Design and available for sale on this website.
