An assortment of lights in various spherical silhouettes, the Nelson Bubble Lamps add a touch of softness and luminosity to interiors. Designed by George Nelson in 1952, these elegant fixtures are fashioned from a sturdy, lightweight steel frame yet have a delicate floating quality, whether in ceiling-hung, floor, table, or wall-mounted variations.

The Nelson Pear Lotus Table Lamp, a flared, pear-shaped shade on a steel base, emits a soft, diffused light. The timeless Nelson Bubble Lamps, originally designed in 1952, beautifully complement contemporary interiors. Base available with or without walnut cover.

Architect George Nelson, Herman Miller’s design director from 1945 to 1972, once remarked, “Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” And then he blew the doors off lighting design. While outfitting his office, Nelson discovered a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted but found too expensive, 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,” which got him thinking. “And then, Whammo!” Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp® (1952) by spinning a skeleton of steel wires on a turntable and shooting it with translucent plastic until it was covered in a smooth, washable film. “When you put a light in it, it glowed.” This is the authentic Bubble Lamp by Herman Miller, produced along with the George Nelson Foundation.
