Designed by George Nelson for Herman Miller
Nelson Saucer Bubble Pendant
Price reduced from $395.00 to $335.75
Bubbling up — With their steel infrastructures and translucent plastic-polymer shades, George Nelson’s Bubble Lamps combine ingenuity with material innovation. They also come with a side of humor, as the whimsically named Saucer Pendant — whose wide shape, flowing lines and ethereal glow references a UFO — aptly demonstrates.

Playful enlightenment

While outfitting his office, architect and Herman Miller design director George Nelson discovered a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted but found too 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,” which got him thinking. “And then, Whammo!” Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp (1952) by spinning a skeleton of steel wires on a turntable and shooting it with translucent plastic until it was covered in a smooth, washable film. “When you put a light in it, it glowed,” he said. This is the authentic Bubble Lamp, produced in partnership with the George Nelson Foundation. Bulb (not included): LED, CFL or incandescent; E26 base; 60W max for small, 150W max for others. UL Listed. Made in U.S.A.

George Nelson

Possessing one of the most inventive minds of the 20th century, George Nelson was the rare person who can envision what isn’t there yet. Nelson felt that designers must be “aware of the consequences of their actions on people and society and thus cultivate a broad base of knowledge and understanding.”

Care & Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller furniture will provide years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain the finish quality of your Herman Miller product, please follow the cleaning procedures provided below.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Plastic Polymer (Lamp)

Normal cleaning
Use a feather duster, a clean soft white cloth, or vacuum with a clean soft brush attachment as needed. For stubborn stains, clean the surface using a soft clean white absorbent cloth with a solution of mild soap and warm water. Wipe down surfaces with the damp cloth and dry with a clean soft white cloth.

Avoid using glass cleaners, abrasive cleaning compounds, ammonia, or bleach; they may damage the surface of the plastic and result in discoloration. Make sure cleaning materials are free of grit and other foreign materials.

Coated Metal (Brushed Nickel Trim)

Normal cleaning
Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks with pre-softened paste wax, following the instructions on the label. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.

Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish.

Timeless
The pendant takes pride of place in the living room in an open concept apartment renovation recently completed for my elderly parents. They love it! This timeless design feels just as appointed today as when it was first created by George Nelson.

A 20th Century Icon
I have alway loved these George Nelson designs, grew up in the 50’s with one hanging in my bedroom. Delighted that they are still in production and that we have one to use in our new home. We may get another one to use in another space. Elegant simplicity!

Love these lights!
We purchased five of the medium sized lights for our new home. We could not be more happy with the lights themselves, as well as the purchasing experience with Herman Miller. Highly recommend!
