Without question, the George Nelson Bubble Lamp® Crisscross Ball Pendant is a tried-and-true standard of the modern vocabulary. George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1952. 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. The Crisscross Ball Pendant comes with a brushed, nickel-plated steel ceiling plate which measures 5.25-inches and 6-feet of cord (hard-wiring required).
