The diamond pattern created by the wire structure in the Bubble Lamp Criss Cross Ball sets it apart from its base version. A delicate design, the Criss Cross Ball is a more modern lamp that could be used throughout the home. It has a shade made entirely from a special white plastic that is engineered to improve the light quality from the bulb, while reducing glare. This provides the adequate amount of light and makes it more practical than a regular harsh ceiling 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.
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.
