Description

The Nelson Ball Bubble pendant’s rounded silhouette is created by spraying a translucent plastic polymer over a steel-wire frame, allowing it to emit a soft, diffused light that creates an inviting atmosphere to any room. The pendant is a stylish illuminator suited for various spaces in homes, cafes and offices.

Nelson Ball Bubble is part of a lighting series designed by George Nelson and produced by Herman Miller in the 1950’s. Nelson wanted to purchase a similar Swedish lamp made of silk, but instead, opted for designing his own version of the pendant to save time and money. The lamps in the collection are still manufactured at the same factory that originally started manufacturing them in 1952.

George Nelson (1908–1986) was an American architect and designer who is considered as one of the greatest American designers of the mid-twentieth century. Nelson studied at Yale University and in Rome, where he became familiar with European architecture and design. After returning to the United States, Nelson started working at Herman Miller, where he quickly took the position of Design Director. During his long career, Nelson designed numerous well-known pieces of furniture, lighting and interiors. Besides a designer, he was also a popular lecturer, photographer and essay writer. Nelson worked for Herman Miller until 1972, and together with designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and Alexander Girard, he created the foundation or Vitra's iconic collections. Some of his most famous designs include the minimalistic Nelson Bench from 1946, the playful Marshmellow Sofa from 1956 and the Ball Clock, Sunflower Clock and Eye Clock from the Wall Clocks collection from 1948–1960.
