The original Bubble Lamp was inspired by a self webbing material used to moth-ball ships in mid-20th century New York. Nelson thought the material would be a perfect fit for lighting, and quickly produced the first prototype by adding the material to a steel frame. One of the many unmistakable descendants of that first lamp, the Bubble Cigar Wall Sconce is produced with its original Nelson specifications. Offers abundant, even light. Manufactured domestically.

Designer: George Nelson
When writing about the course of his remarkable 50-year career, George Nelson described a series of creative "zaps" — 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 antihuman." 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.View other products by George Nelson
