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

Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp Cigar Floor Lamp 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.

Floor lamp offered in brushed nickel finish with a brushed nickel or walnut base. Select from three shade sizes. All sizes include 9 feet of cord with on/off floor switch.

Shown in large with brushed nickel stem and base.

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 Love it Love the lamp, we choose the large cigar lamp - it looks fabulous in a modern /mid century dining room. When the lamp is on... gives a lovely diffused look. I was worried the lamp would be too big for the space but works very well. Product was well package, delivery was swift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This floor lamp is not only well constructed, it is beautiful. I added an app controlled light bulb so I can change colors and the brightness levels from my phone. It looks like an art statement. It is modern, whimsical and makes me smile :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent "wall of light"! Superb light that easily fills a home office with a massive surface area that provides soft white "wrap around" light that has minimal shadow or glare. I use mine with a 42W CFL (200W equivalent) that lights the whole cigar (Large) up brilliantly. IMO the CFL that came with it is underpowered and too warm. I like a 5000K or even better 6500K light that glows bright white instead of dirty tan/yellow of the soft light bulbs. I spent 4 years looking for the "right" light for my home office and this is without a doubt the perfect light for my needs. No issues with the smell either.
