Criss Cross Nelson Lamps by Modernica

July 26th, 2011 by retail design blog

Without a question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Cigar Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary. George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1947. These lamps with their simple sculptural shapes were constructed of an innovative taut plastic that coats a steel wire-frame. This unique design and use of materials prove to eliminate glare and provide an abundant yet diffused light, a quality which alone is unique to this material.

Since 1989, Modernica has proven itself with its steadfast commitment to authenticity and craftsmanship. Being at the forefront of rediscovering and re-launching out-of-production pieces, Modernica still uses the same methods and materials to handcraft each lamp that were used in 1952 with Howard Miller’s first production run of the George Nelson’s Bubble
Lamp collection.

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.
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp® collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Modernica is the official site for the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Collection.
