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

Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Criss Cross 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.

George Nelson Bubble Lamps

A mid-century classic, the Bubble Lamp was first designed by George Nelson in 1947 and was produced by Howard Miller starting in the early 1950s and ending in 1979. The supplier has reissued the Nelson Bubble Lamps to the original specifications, using the original Howard Miller tooling. These famous lamps are part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a statement this makes! I came across this at a local lighting store after spending some time on the internet looking for just the right "look". Had they not inflated the price so significantly, I would have purchased it right away - however, a quick search on YLighting - a site I've purchased from before to full satisfaction - there it was, in stock and priced competitively - I immediately purchased. There was a delay in getting it installed as I waited on the electrician but boy the wait was worth it! This lamp is actually a "piece" - it's well constructed and illuminates the bedroom beautifully. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Modern Classic at Affordable Price We're architects, and when it came time to find just the perfect pendant light for the table in the breakfast room of our 1925 bungalow, we knew to immediately go to YLighting.com. We just clicked on the "Ceiling + Pendant Light" category and were able to narrow down our selection in moments. The Nelson Criss Cross Bubble Lamp is even more beautiful and finely crafted than the cut sheet suggests - a tremendous value from an excellent company. When we needed a longer cord for our 10'-0" ceiling, the folks at Modernica responded immediately and courteously. We're very pleased with our purchase all the way around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Classic Ultra versatile, midcentury classic with minimalist feel. This Pendant is very light and fairly easy to install. It takes a single, 65W bulb. If you're lighting a large area you may want to use more than one Pendant. The power cord is adjustable in length, you will need to strip some wires before installing. The membrane covering the the wire frame is easy to clean (wipe with damp cloth) and more pliable than expected. Y lighting shipping was very fast and the status of the shipment was constantly updated via email. Great customer service as well. I would definitively recommend both, product and store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and cool at the same time This is our second purchase of the Nelson Criss Cross; our first stayed in a home we just sold. It has always been the perfect balance of design and everyday, formal and casual, hip and classic. My only caution for this particular version of the Nelson bubble lamps is that we found it overwhelmed by the room in our new home, even though the room itself is approximately the same size as the previous one. Because of it's smaller size & fewer vertical lines it has a delicate quality & is overpowered by heavy elements. We'll have to order a larger one for our room and find a new spot for the criss cross...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful purchase! I have dreamed of owning this lamp for a couple of years now. We recently moved into our first home and we finally had the place for the Crisscross Bubble Lamp. It is beautiful when the light is off, but even more beautiful when it is lit up. We used a compact Fluorescent bulb because we wanted a really white light and it looks fantastic. We just put it up and cannot stop staring at it! Ylighting was very fast and the lamp came in perfect condition. We went to our local DWR and with tax and shipping the lamp was $397, so going through Ylighting was a tremendous savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and we love it! This pendant lamp has transformed our dining room. We went from a traditional chandelier ( pewter with 6 "candles") to the saucer criss cross lamp. We were concerned that it might take up too much space after the open look of the chandelier, but the opposite has happened, the size small has opened the above-table space of our dining room, and looks great with our Danish modern table and chairs and Stickley cupboard. Because it is relatively shallow, we were advised to use an appliance bulb in it, so that the light source would be somewhat recessed; that works well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. Absolutely Beautiful. The website experience was great because it was very detailed with a schematic information which help me during the remodeling process. After I ordered the product, I received it about 3-4 days later. The product arrived unscathed, even the box looked was beautiful. I've owned other George Nelson lamps before, so I knew what I was getting. One thing that I do have to say however, is the product photography casted some shadows which made the product look more defined and attractive. However, in person, it looked a little different. (but still beautiful.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the electrician loved it! I,ve been living with a bare lightbulb in the ceiling fixture for 21 years! No kidding! But the wait was worth it. I bought the medium size lamp and hung it about 14 in. below our 9'5" ceiling. I wasn't sure if it would look right so close to the ceiling, but I took a chance... and it looks positively ethereal! Not like a lamp, but like something beautiful from another dimension. It floats in space. Everybody loves it!. I chose to use use a 75W incand. bulb rather than the 150W max, and the illumination level is perfect. Happy!
