ABOUT THE BUBBLE LAMP CRISS CROSS SAUCER

George Nelson's Bubble Lamp Criss Cross Saucer has a unique shape that makes it so desirable and attractive. The unusual shape is crafted from a careful maniuplation of steel wires that are then wrapped with a special plastic polymer. Retaining its white colour when it is illuminated, the lamp can emit a diffuse light that creates a relaxing ambience and warm glow. A chic lighting fixture to add to your interior that forms a centre piece for the kitchen or dining room.

STORY BEHIND THE BUBBLE LAMP CRISS CROSS SAUCER

One of the most interesting and unique features of the lamps in the Bubble Lamp series is the material used to create the white lamp shade that is stretched across the metal frame. The material that is used on the Bubble Lamp Cigar was originally inspired by the materials used by the US Army in World War Two. George Nelson was inspired by the special plastic polymer spray used by the US Army to protect and keep old aircraft and ships in good condition. This material works so well because it retains its bright white colour when illuminated and makes it glow brightly with a perfectly subdued light.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

George Nelson

1908-1986 (United States)

American industrial designer, George Nelson was one of the founders of American modernism. He was renowned for finding inspiration in the unlikeliest places. Instead of looking for a shape that resembled a human body, Nelson introduced the idea that anything could be turned into a unique furniture design. His most famous pieces are based on coconuts and marshmallows.

"I have never met a designer who was retained to keep things the same as they were”
