Bubble Lamp Collection designed by George Nelson
Designer: George Nelson
Collection: Bubble Lamps
George Nelson's Saucer Lamp is one of the most popular lamps in the George Nelson Bubble Lamp collection and a Stardust Staff Pick. Part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art, these stylish modern saucer-shaped light fixtures have stood the test of time. After more than half a century; the Saucer Lamps continue to be made by hand in a workshop in Michigan. A single Saucer Lamp is perfect as a dining room pendant light when suspended over a dining table. Several Bubble Lamp styles and sizes can be suspended at different heights for a beautiful display. The Saucer Lamps brighten up any space with their timeless understated elegance and soft diffused light. George Nelson Lamps are perfect light fixtures for residential- and commercial interior applications.
The George Nelson Saucer Bubble Lamp is a beloved icon of mid-century modern design and sets the right mood in any interior space. George Nelson designed the Bubble Lamp collection for Howard Miller in 1947. From a design career that spanned several decades, George Nelson left the world a rich heritage of design. The Bubble Lamps, simple and chic, capture the essence of George Nelson's design philosophy which asserts that an object needs to have both timeless form and utter functionality. These popular bubble-shaped modern pendant lamps continue to be highly desirable thanks to their attractive styling and timeless curves. Part of the lamp's appeal is its ingenious cocoon fabric which allows for a soft diffused (non-glare) lighting. The George Nelson Bubble lamps illuminate the room with a gentle and very even diffused light which creates a warm and inviting atmosphere. These beautiful mid-century modern pendant lights look beautiful when they light up at night and creating a stunning atmosphere in a hallway, dining room, living room, bedroom or office.
The Saucer Bubble Lamp by George Nelson is fashioned in sturdy, light-weight steel and a special woven white polymer cocoon fabric with a protective plastic coating. Nelson Bubble lamps are easy to install and work with a standard US incandescent or screw-in CFL bulb. Stardust carries the entire line of George Nelson Bubble lamps including the popular Ball Lamps, Saucer Lamps, Cigar Lamps and Criss Cross Lamps.
The George Nelson Saucer Lamp is available in three sizes. Each George Nelson Saucer Lamp includes a brushed nickel-plated ceiling plate that measures 5.25" in diameter. The Small Saucer Lamp uses 1 x 60W/120V light bulb. The Medium-, Large- and Extra Large Saucer Lamps use 1 x 150W/120V light bulb. We recommend to use an incandescent light bulb which allows the Bubble Lamps to be dimmed to a soft glow with an external wall dimmer from Lutron or similar. George Nelson Bubble Lamps are CE, UL and cUL listed for residential- and commercial applications. GU 24 Sockets are available upon request for orders of 10 lamps or more.
The George Nelson Bubble lamps come with 6-feet of grounded electrical cord (3-wire electrical cable). Custom electrical cord lengths are available upon request for customers with high ceilings. If you request a custom electrical cord length; please note that you need to hire a licensed electrician who can connect the electrical cable to the socket & complete the installation.
