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

The design is classic, and the construction is sturdy. The mathematical simplicity is truly a work of art. The packaging the light was shipped in protected the light, when a worker actually feel off a ladder and crushed the corner of the box. This extra effort is well appreciated.

the bigger the better!
I purchased the small lamp for my new home foyer in 2010. I should have listened to reviewers - bigger is better. I purchased the extra large and it is fantastic.
Enormous and stunning
I was so happy to find the extra large version of the saucer lamp. It's a gorgeous, classic piece and will be perfect for the 14' ceilings in our living. I was surprised at the lack of any padding in the shipping box, but the lamp seems to be no worse for wear.

Warm and Serene
While the lamp is very large, it is also very light weight and made of durable material. It casts a warm glow and due to its color and cloud like shape, it gives off a feeling of relaxation and serenity. At night, and with a dimmer switch, it almost is reminiscent of a lantern.
