Modernica is the official manufacturer for the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Collection. In 1952, George Nelson designed the first Bubble Lamp collection which was manufactured by Howard Miller until 1979 when the collection went out of production. In 1998, Modernica acquired all of the tooling and materials to begin production of this iconic series. The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
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.
Handcrafted in Michigan, U.S.A.
