Description

Architect George Nelson, who was Herman Miller’s design director from 1945 to 1972, once said, “Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” And then he blew the doors off lighting design. While outfitting his office, 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.” 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. UL Listed. Made in U.S.A.

  • Designed with a swivel hinge and 12-foot plug-in cord, the shade can be readjusted left or right, as well as shifted up or down without moving the bracket on the wall.

Care and Assembly

View Instructions
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 Base 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. Wood & Veneer Walnut Base Normal cleaning Dust furniture with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth. Once a month Clean the surface with a soft cloth dampened with a quality cleaner formulated for wood furniture. Wipe the surface in the direction of the wood grain to remove dirt and fingerprints. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth. Twice a year Apply a good quality furniture polish with a soft cloth. Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based. Minor repair of water rings, stains, and scratches Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulates the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.
