The first Bubble Lamp was designed by George Nelson in 1947, and produced by Howard Miller starting in the early 1950's, only to end production in 1979. Modernica has reissued the Nelson Bubble Lamps to the original specifications using the original Howard Miller tooling.
The Bubble Lamp is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
The pendant George Nelson Bubble Lamps have 6 feet of cord included in the assembly kit. The extra large sizes come with 9 feet of cord.
Custom cord lengths are available. However, the custom cord length is not supplied as an addition to the existing lamp cord, and does not include rewiring of the fixture.
The pendant Bubble lamps also include a brushed nickel ceiling plate that measures 5.25 inches in diameter.
All of the Bubble Lamps are UL Rated for up to 150 watt bulbs, except for the Small Saucer style which is UL Rated for 60 watts.
