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

Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Cigar Light with stand 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.

Cigar light mounted on low stand. Includes 7.5 feet of cord.

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. Our 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.

George Nelson

When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps", or 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 Gorgeous This really is a beautiful lamp. We purchased it to keep the Nelson theme going throughout our house. Keep in mind the medium is too big for a nightstand. If you are undecided go with the small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lamp I was looking for an accent lamp for my Heywood Wakefield table for my office. It came packaged very securely and the product is very high quality. It is an accent lamp as it 'glows', it doesn't provide any direct light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! Great product. Material is great quality and the light that it gives off is amazing. I ordered four more, but of different shapes and sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nelson cigar bubble lamps are classic I love the lamp - now that I finally have it. I'd wanted one for years and when an old floor lamp died I decided I would replace it with something real and classic. The problem was that when my long anticipated purchase arrived it was defective - it wouldn't stand up straight because the stand was not centered properly when welded to the shade - the return was a huge hassle requiring many emails and phone calls to both Modernica and Yliving - now that I have the replacement lamp I'm happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bubble Cigar Lamp with Stand We have a mid-century modern home that was crying for just the right table lamp to go with our mid-century modern furniture. Since we buy all our lamps from YLighting, this was where we turned, and the Bubble Cigar Lamp with Stand was exactly what we were looking for. It's smart looking, beautifully made, and a thing of beauty. We're so pleased with our purchase. Yeah for YLighting!!
