Originally created by George Nelson back in ‘47, the original line featuring the minimalist architectural design, were made from a new taut plastic which coats a steel wire-frame. All lamps are made with an eight-inch solid steel base, 86’’ of cord and have a user friendly on/off pull chain featuring a chic solid walnut ball end cap. These amazing lamps provide a plenty of but diffused light, a quality that alone is truly one-of-a-kind to this material. Modernica still uses the very same methods and materials to handcraft each and every lamp which were used back in ‘52 with Howard Miller’s very first production run of the George Nelson Bubble Lamp line.
