Design by George Nelson, 1947.
Handcrafted in Michigan, U.S.A. by Modernica.

Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Cigar Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary. George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1947. These lamps, with their simple sculptural shapes, are constructed of an innovative taut plastic that coats a steel wire-frame. Nelson's unique design and ingenious use of materials prove to eliminate glare and provide an abundant, yet diffused light. A quality which alone is unique to this material.

From the forming of the wire-frame, to the spraying of the vinyl form, one-by-one, each Bubble Lamp is constructed to last decades and each Bubble Lamp is built to George Nelson?s original specifications. These famous lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Brushed nickel canopy. Each pendant comes with 6 feet of wire that can be field shortened.

George Nelson

When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — moments of out-of-the-blue inspiration "when the solitary individual finds he is connected with a reality he never dreamed of."

Nelson said that for a designer to deal creatively with human needs, "he must first make a radical, conscious break with all values he identifies as anti-human." Designers also must constantly be aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society. In fact, he declared that "total design is nothing more or less than a process of relating everything to everything." So he said that rather than specializing, designers must cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.

Nelson did so as few are able, and, with the help of well-timed zaps, he helped define modern, humane design.

Nelson Cagar "Bubble Lamp"

Looked for this product on line and came across Ylighting and they offered me a "to the trade" discount. The lamp arrived in perfect condition and was here in 3 days. I would highly recommend this product and Ylighting. They offered excellent customer service and answered all of my questions promptly and courteously.

American Classic - Worth Every Penny

This is the second bubble lamp I've bought. Hardwired and super easy to install. Stretch material over the frame is durable and substantial. Weight of the light is such that the hanging cord is taught. Mix different styles like I did for a mid-century collection.

A Classic

The Nelson Cigar Lamp is a classic. The size and shape fit easily into many decorating motifs and the stretch skin produces a pleasant glow when lit. This is my second Nelson lamp. Cleaning the shade should be done with a bit of caution, but it's a great lamp for the price.

I love this cool modern shape.

This is the second lamp we have purchased from Ylighting. They sent it out really quick and it came in perfect condition. The nelson pendant lamps are a great addition to any space that you want to give a modern warm feel. They have such a classic shape. We have several at our business too.

This lamp is beautiful. I just wish it had a longer cord as we hung it in our stairwell and it the cord was not as long as I would have liked.

This is a classic, stylish lamp- and it looks great in my foyer. I also love that it can handle plenty of wattage for a brighter entry if I choose.

It's spectacular - a real classic contemporary design

We like clean lines and soft light, and this large "cigar lamp" fills the bill. We put it in a stairwell at the mezzanine level and it shines through a window in the exterior wall that creates a dramatic view from the outside of the house.

By:Marian B. , Homeowner (Edisto, SC )

Spectacular design and beautiful aesthetic!

We purchased the large Cigar Lamp for our entryway to replace a hideous brass and glass chandelier original to our home. The Nelson Cigar Lamp is an ideal fit for the space and our house in general. It provides ample light and looks great doing it. We could not be more pleased with the purchase from YLighting.

Love it!

You can't go wrong with the Nelson cigar light in your mid-century modern home! We used the medium size as our dining room light. The simplicity of design is such a perfect statement. Y Lighting delivered promptly, completely undamaged, and was incredibly easy to work with. I highly recommend them and this light!

The lamp is beautiful.

Great lamp for our new space. We sized it incorrectly and had to return the medium for the small, but the return process worked well. There was a little confusion as to whether to return it to the distributor or to ylighting, but that got worked out easily.

This is a wonderful contemporary update for our foyer

We purchased this product on line....was very impressed with the service provided by Y lighting...right down to being sure we ordered the right size. We needed the large Cigar lamp, but this size is very large and needs a foyer application.
.....We are having it installed next week, so I can't comment on the performace. The look however it great. Stylish but not too out there! I'd give it a 5, but I want to see it lit first!

This wonderful design helped fill an awkward space at a tall staircase landing beautifully.

Our redesign of an old cape included refinishing a tall stairway with a bathroom extension covering a portion. We needed to infill some of the tall void above the stair landing with an attractive light and the George Nelson Cigar lamp worked great.

This pendant filled, and illuminated a high stair landing beautifully!

On a recent renovation of an existing cape we borrowed some space from the extra tall landing for a shower niche in the bathroom renovation on the floor above. The space above was filled and illuminated majestically with the Cigar pendant.

We love our Nelson Cigar pendant.

It's a classic that I will always love.

I purchased two of the medium cigar nelson bubble lamps to use them as bedside lamps. They have such a clean line to them and take a bright enough bulb to read by. The simplicity allows the artwork to be framed. Working with Ylighting was seamless the lamps came in perfect condition in record time. I could not be happier

A calming sense of well being.

I scoured the website for the perfect fixture for our dining room which has a tall cathedral ceiling. We had a lot of space to fill so I needed something long, I selected the Herman Miller Cirgar lamp (with my wife's approval).

It changed everything for the better, it looks so good, what a transformation! The room feels classy and dressed up now, we couldn't be happier. The transaction with Ylighting was smooth as silk, we are now looking at changing all of our light fixtures.

By:Eric C. , Homeowner (Germantown, MD, USA)

Cigar Lamp

We buy a larger volume of these fixtures than the normal person. We also buy the Saucer Lamp. The Cigar Lamp is always a decortive element & used mainly as accent as it will not give off a lot of light. It has a nice warm glow & is an off white color. Comes w/ a stainless ceiling shroud. Easy to hardwire. Very durable.

By:Richard , Architect (Chicago IL)

Love this light!

Received quickly, installed easily and it's the perfect modern touch in my transitional space. Well priced. However, you do need a long, thin arm to replace the bulb. Installer wasnt able to do so, but it wasnt a problem for me.

Basic Simple Clean Modern

at first I thought the lights looked a little plastic-y but once installed and lit they looked fine. Let the air out a little first as I think they are emitting VOCs but they are definitely a good call.

I love you George Nelson.

I ordered two small cigar lamps to hang over the bedside tables in the master bedroom. They hang pretty low and they look awesome! I keep going up there and flipping on the switch so I can admire them.
As to whether they were easy to install, I cannot say; I had an electrician come in to do it (he was here all day). I had pull switches installed on each lamp so that my husband and I can just turn them on/off with out having to get out of bed. The electrician had to install ceiling fan mounts in the attic so that our tugging on the chain doesn't pull the lights right out of the ceiling. Very happy with product/purchase & quick shipping!

Love it!

Needed a pendant for a primary stairway with a 2 story ceiling in a new house down by the water. This classic design is perfect. Just the right balance of sophisticated design with its clean lines yet still a relaxed feeling. A nice diffused light that's still bright enough to fill the stairway. Quality materials that are nice looking up close and far away. I'll probably get one of those poles for changing the light bulb since I don't think my arm is long enough to reach inside even if I was on a ladder. My favorite light fixture in the house, so far.

Perfect Mid-Century Design

The George Nelson lighting is absolutely perfect for our famous Mid-Century homes in Palm Springs. They also provide a lovely diffused light, look sophisticated in any setting and yet do not intrude. Dealing with YLighting associates was a pleasure and they were extremely helpful in guiding my selections. Their recommendations were right on! I am now the proud owner of 4 lamps and look forward to buying more.

By:Barb G. , Homeowner (Palm Springs)

So so nice!

My designer bought this for me. She said she bought it at YLighting, but either way I wanted to just share the beauty of this fixture. It's totally transformed my entrance way. And I really like that it takes a singe incandescent bulb. I put it on a dimmer. The light from one bulb really fills the entire space. I thought I might need another spot light installed up the stairs, but I don't. This fixture is perfect - buy it!)

Lovely, as expected.

Have always loved the bubble lamps, but was never "up & close and personal" with one until I received the Cigar lamp. I was very impressed with the lovely material and finish. While they look like simple lanterns, they are very sturdy & gorgeous pieces of art that are easy to install and classic.

By:Cameron S. , Designer

In my opinion George Nelson can do no wrong. His lighting designs, especially, are superb. This one fills the space perfectly—a tight stairwell with high ceilings—and provides plenty of light. The look is interesting, but not trendy; modern, timeless. Love.

Great Light, Transitional Style

I'm using this light in the foyer, over a stairwell. It can be modern looking, retro- or mid century, and I think it is flexible enough to blend well with some traditional furniture pieces. It is a functional flexible light and it looks great!

The shipping took a week longer than estimated. Other than that, the product arrived as promised. Sometimes it is hard to tell the true color of something when you see it on a screen. I did not realize the pendant lamp purchased was white white, I thought it was an off white as that's how it looked on the screen. Nonetheless, I'm happy with it.

Smokin' Cigar Lamp!

My Mid-Century Modern wife has been eying the George Nelson Bubble Lamps for years. She's in orbit with the cluster of Saucer, Cigar and Pear Lamps that remind her of the Nelson Bubbles that once hung in her childhood home. The elongated Cigar Lamp in our archway creates a perfect balance with the alternating shapes and varying heights that play between the three Bubble Lamps. The lengthly cord gave us plenty of options to adjust the height to our liking, and hangs beautifully from our gently vaulted ceiling. We have the lights on a dimmer and love the unique, soft glow that illuminates throughout the room. We highly recommend these ultra-cool lamps!

One highly attractive light

Excellent quality in construction and light. I highly recommend this design for anyone looking for a simple and modern look to add to their modernish environment.

I love this lamp. Iconic and timeless.

The George Nelson Cigar Lamp looks great in my foyer. The large size, which is quite long, fills the 2 story foyer perfectly. The lamp ships with 6' of cord but you can order extra cord for $3 a foot.

YLighting customer service was great and the lamp arrived quickly and in good condition.

Good light, easy install

Attractive, stylish light that is rather simple to install. The copper conductor on the cord is slightly beefy compared to the flimsy product on the market - refreshing. As result it takes a higher watt bulb.

The fabric on this light is said to be a type of plastic, but it resembles more of a stretch fabric; you won't really notice any plastic at all. It is rough, stretchy and will be difficult to dust by traditional methods. Generally seems as if it is fairly puncture prone as your fingers sink into it with significant ease upon handling.

Overall good value for what you get, does not look cheap and was easy to install.

By:Michael L. , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)

These lamps put out such great light!

We built a house, and selected 3 pendants from Lowes for over the island. We were not happy with the brightness of the lamps, so we removed them and installed 3 small cigars. The difference is amazing! The island area is so bright compared to the original ones, and highlights our piece of granite on the island. We also installed a dimmer, so we can adjust to our mood. And what a classic design!

Love the lamp!

I have always wanted a George Nelson pendant lamp and found the perfect place for one in our remodel.

Y-lighting's site was easy to work with - loved the email updates and the free delivery! Who could ask for more.

Love our cigar lamps!

After a long search for lights that would complement our midcentury modern home, that would provide ambient or task lighting, and that would work on a track, we were delighted to find these cigar lamps. They have transformed our dining room. We love them!

A perfect retro statement!

We had George Nelson bubble lights hanging in our home when I was growing up in the 50's. They were sturdy, beautiful and interesting, and that's what they are today. When we needed to replace our old fluorescent fixture, we ordered 3 small cigar lights to hang over our new kitchen island. They are all that I remember. Even the small ones are impressive--we didn't need all 3 for over the island, so we hung one over the sink. There were no installation problems. It took longer to remove the old fixture than to put in the new ones. Everyone comments on how amazing they look, and our contractor called them "awesome". They were very well packed and arrived very quickly. I will definitely be ordering from YLighting again.
