Herman Miller® Nelson® Wall Sconces
George Nelson, 1947
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp Wall Sconce is handsomely constructed with a 2-inch thick solid walnut wall-mount and a brushed-nickel steel arm that extends out approximately 14-inches. The arm has a swivel hinge and an adjustable 12-foot plug-in cord with a counterweight, that allows for height adjustments. This clever design allows one to adjust the sconce from left-to-right, and up-and-down, without having to change its position on the wall.
George Nelson designed the first lamps in 1952. These lamps with their simple sculptural shapes are constructed of an innovative taut resinous 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.
The George Nelson Bubble Lamp collection is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
This sconce is available with the small sized Ball, Saucer, or Cigar Bubble Light shades. It is height adjustable and swivels smoothly in a 180 degree arc.
