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

Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Propeller 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Nelson lamp, puts out great light! We have several saucer and cigar shaped lamps, and we love them! But we decided to try the more unique Propeller for a bedroom. Lamp arrived to us on time and in perfect condition. Packaging for all Bubble lamps we have bought is excellent. We installed it using a 150 watt bulb and dimmer switch. Perfect for our room! The George Nelson Bubble Lamps are well made, not a cheap knockoff. A timeless product that will last many years, we will not get tired of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful suspension fixture - Propellor Lamp GREAT lamp. The 150 watts means you get LIGHT (so many bad fixtures these days don't illuminate except downwards) It's easy to have on a dimmer, giving you a huge range, and the light is 360 degrees and diffused. I have it in my office and it's perfect. Plus it's a great sculptural presence when it's not lit, I love the shape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from one word -- beautiful timeless and classic. looks amazing when hung, definitely makes a statement. if you like clean simple lines, you can't go wrong with the propeller. box got wet from rain but inside was well packaged with plastic. there was a small half-inch rust colored blemish on the lamp, most of it came off with a damp cloth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A masterpiece. This lamp must be physically seen to fully appreciate the exquisite design. The flow of the form, around itself makes you change location to take in the complete design. The shipping was incredibly fast and ordering could not have been more expedient.
