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.

Great way to combine cigar lamps.
Very well constructed and a great way to have 3 all together. Happy to see it - as was my electrician.

I've been looking for a device to hang three lights in our foyer. Sales reps at the big box stores were clueless when I inquired of the availability of such a product. None of the retail lighting stores were of help. I was resigned to asking my husband to construct the idea that was in my head. Then, a friend said to try YLighting....and, TA-DA! YLighting had the perfect solution -- the Triple Bubble lamp fixture! YLighting saved my marriage!...well, not really. But, it sure solved a design issue that has meant a light-less foyer for three years!

Perfect solution to the dining light dilemma
This enabled me to combine the different Nelson lamps so that I didn't have to choose just one shape. I love the clean minimal look without the light cords hanging down extraneously.

Classic Modern and Beautiful
I had a difficult time deciding which George Nelson bubble lamp to hang over my dining table ... so the triple fixture was a wonderful way to get more than one.

This is the perfect light fixture for our stairwell.
The fixture arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Now we will be able to choose the size and shapes of the Nelson Bubbles that will suit us best. Thanks

cant install these lights, because the triple fixture does not allow the cables to pass through, parts of this item need to be replaced, as they are defective.

This is just the fixture. It doesn't actually include the lamp shades.
This is a kit with three cords and bulb sockets that fit on spreaders to keep the lamps apart. It requires some assembly and the cords don't slide through the supplied wooden dowels very easily.

Beautiful way to hang multiple Nelson lamps
A very attractive product, it allows us to hang three Nelson ceiling lamps of varying sizes. The effect is gorgeous yet still understated, and works perfectly in our high-ceiling living room. Was a little tough to install but we are very happy with the end result.

Mid Century Love!
We ordered three of these GN pendants and hung all of them together, they are really gorgeous and make quite a statement! Our electrician installed them in no time at all and they are really stunning especially at night. No one ever remarked about our last light fixture (which was new) but everyone notices these pendants right away, they are very unique and modern. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the price is somewhat high for the simplicity of the pendant but I do realize that I am paying for George Nelsons fame and design. Your site had a good price and of course no tax with free shipping, what else can you ask for!
