A mid-century classic, George Nelson first designed the Bubble Lamp in 1947 for Howard Miller. The firm eventually discontinued the line in 1979. In the 1990's Modernica reissued the 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 Bubble Lamp wall sconce is made with a 2-inch thick walnut wall bracket and a steel arm with a brushed-nickel finish that extends approximately 14 inches and an adjustable plug-in cord that's 12-feet long. The sconce arm has a swivel hinge and a counterweight, which allows for adjustment from left-to-right and up-and-down without having to change its position on the wall. Each shade is formed from a steel frame and a polymer covering.
