Description from Hive Modern

  • Design George Nelson, 1947
  • Steel skeleton, self-webbing soft plastic
  • Made in USA by Modernica

It was in 1947 that George Nelson became inspired by a self webbing material used to moth-ball ships in New York and he convinced himself it would be perfect for lighting. He made a metal frame, tracked down the source of the webbing material and by the next day he created a big glowing sphere and the Bubble Lamp was born. Modernica has faithfully produced the bubble lamps to the exact specifications using the original Howard Miller factory tooling. Each lamp includes a 5.25″ dia. brushed, nickel-plated steel ceiling plate and six feet of white lamp cord (please note the extra large saucer includes 9-feet of white cord).
