George Nelson Ball Bubble Pendant Lamp | Hi-Furniture

George Nelson was an American industrial designer, and one of the founders of American Modernism. While Director of Design for the Herman Miller furniture company both Nelson, and his design studio, George Nelson Associates, Inc., designed much of the 20th century's most iconic modernist furniture.

"What is the crowning glory of your civilization... the symbol as clear a statement as the pyramids, the Parthenon, the cathedrals? What is this symbol? What is its name? Its name is Junk. Junk is the rusty, lovely, brilliant symbol of the dying years of your time. Junk is your ultimate landscape." - George Nelson, at the International Design Conference in Aspen, 1965.

The first Bubble Lamp was designed by George Nelson in 1947 and manufactured by Howard Miller, starting production in 1952 and ceasing in 1979. Modernica has reissued the Lamps to original specifications using the Howard Miller tooling.

The Bubble Lamp is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
