The Bubble Lamps were designed by George Nelson who was the creative director of the prestigious design studio Herman Miller from 1946 to 1972. In 1998 Modernica acquired the original Howard Miller tooling and became the exclusive authorised manufacturer of George Nelson Bubble Lamps. Today the Bubble Lamps have become a modern classic and is featured as a permanent collection in the Museum of Modern Art in New York. 

Our Bubble Lamp is an exact reproduction of the original - from its design and dimensions to the materials and tooling used, our pieces are as close as you can get to the original. This means that our lamps also replicate its unique and useful illumination - glare free, abundant yet diffused light. A quality which alone is unique to this material. Provides a warm and balanced light. 

George Nelson got his inspiration form Liberty Ships being mothballed. When Nelson was outfitting his office in 1947, he coveted a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp but found it prohibitively expensive. He then recalled seeing a photo in the paper of Liberty ships being mothballed “by having the decks covered with netting and then being sprayed with a self-webbing plastic,” said Nelson. He convinced himself it would be perfect for lighting. He made a metal frame, tracked down the source of the webbing material and by the next day he created a big glowing sphere and the Bubble Lamp was born.
