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.See other lights/products from George Nelson
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.

Gorgeous piece of art.
I use it for the reading area in my family room and I absolutely love it. It looks just like a piece of art, yet very functional. It brighten up the entire room. The installation is very easy, but two people are needed, as the lamp is actually quite heavy.

i've bought three of these george nelson wall lamps from ylighting, each in a different shape. they're well made, give a nice light, and are sculpturally interesting, great to look at. also, convenient: you can hang them in places where you don't already have in-wall wiring--the cord comes down the wall, plugs into a wall socket, and looks like that's how it's meant to be. i'd buy more if i had more walls.
