The Original George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Saucer Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary. The Bubble Lamps, with their iconic sculptural shapes, were designed by 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.
The Saucer Pendant is available in all three original sizes, small, medium, and large, in addition to an extra-large size introduced by Modernica Studios. 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.
Since 1989, Modernica has proven its steadfast commitment to authenticity and craftsmanship. Being at the forefront of rediscovering and relaunching out-of-production pieces, Modernica still uses the same methods and materials to handcraft each lamp that were used in 1952.
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Modernica is the official site for the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Collection.
