The Bubble Lamp Ball is one of George Nelson's more classic shapes from the Bubble Lamp series. A glowing orb, the Bubble Ball Lamp would sit beautifully above a dining table or kitchen table. Owing to the innovative shade design, the lamp provides a diffuse light without any glare so it can be used in any room. One of the most attarctive features of the lamp is the curved lines of the wire structure that supports the white shade creates the rounded shape of the Bubble Ball Lamp.
One of George Nelson's most famous collections, the Bubble Lamp series uses a mixture of inventive techniques in the wire structure and the stretched plastic shade. The plastic shade that is pulled tight across the wire framework is made from a special material that reduces glare and emits a subdued light, perfect for everyday tasks that gives a warm glow to the home. The Bubble Lamp Ball replica is for a more traditional style and is less experimental in its shape.
