The Nelson Orbit Bubble Pendant has a striking presence with its recognisable but inimitable shape. This sculptural pendant light comes in two sizes and has a unique steel understructure. It also includes a ceiling plate and a 3-metre cord. Inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps, George Nelson designed the series in 1952, featuring organic, elemental shapes like a rounded apple, an elongated cigar and a shapely pear. We worked with the George Nelson Foundation to reintroduce this archival shape in 2018.
Nelson was inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish hanging lamps that he wanted to acquire for his office, but he found the price to be prohibitive. An ingenious and resourceful designer, he went on to create the first set of Nelson Bubble Lamps using a translucent white plastic spray, a technique developed by the U.S. military at the time. Nelson drew from elemental, organic shapes to make an array of variations that form the collection.
