THE GEORGE NELSON BUBBLE LAMP IS MANUFACTURED BY MODERNICA STUDIOS AND IS AVAILABLE AT POMELO.
The steel wire frame is coated with taut, webbed plastic. Thanks to its spherical shape, the lamp emits a warm atmospheric light – well-distributed, and without any glare.
Each lamp comes with a steel ceiling plate and a 1.8m cord (or 2.7m, for the extra-large version), but the versatile lamp can also be wall-mounted.
Bubble lamps come in various shapes, including (from left) the Saucer, Cigar, Ball, and Pear. The webbing is available in both the classic style as well as the criss-cross version.
Inspired by a Swedish silk lantern he could not afford, architect-turned-designer George Nelson set out to recreate a more economical and sturdier lamp. The result is the handcrafted Bubble pendant lamp, recognisable for its all-white, paper-like sculptural form. Designed in 1947, the Bubble lamp is regarded as a Modernist classic.
The George Nelson Bubble lamp is part of the permanent collection in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Nelson decided to study architecture after stumbling upon the architecture school at Yale, where he sought refuge from a rainstorm. He later became the design director of furniture manufacturer Herman Miller.classic style as well as the criss-cross version.
