Nelson Bubble Wall Sconce Light by Hay

Nelson Bubble Wall Sconce Light


Designed by George Nelson. The Nelson Wall Sconce is part of the iconic Bubble Lamp series designed in 1947. A walnut wall mount and steel arm attach the shade to a wall, filling any interior with a warm, diffused light. The arm can be adjusted left to right and up and down, without having to change its position on the wall.

These sculptural lights consist of a rubber impregnated fabric forming a strong but translucent covering over the metal framework. 
The Bubble Lamp is featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.


Shade in webbing polymer.
Frame top and bottom ring in coated and brushed metal and nickel.
Each lamp comes with a wallbracket in walnut, an arm in brushed nickel steel that extends approximately 36 cm and pull switch.

The shades can be dusted and when necessary washed with a soft sponge and soapy water.

George Nelson

American designer George Nelson is responsible for some of the most well-known pieces of mid-century design, including the Ball Clock for Vitra and the Bubble Lamp for Herman Miller – now included in MoMA’s permanent collection.

Although originally trained as an architect, Nelson created furniture, exhibition and graphic design, and contributed over 150 magazine articles and a dozen books over the course of his career. Nelson designed his first furniture collection for Herman Miller in 1945 having caught the company’s eye with his modular Storage Wall, becoming design director at the company by 1947, and overhauling everything from its products to its graphics and marketing materials. He was also responsible for recruiting designers including Charles and Ray Eames and Isamu Noguchi for the company.

Nelson left behind a catalogue of designs that have become iconic examples of their era.
