  • Originally created for the Howard Miller Clock Company in 1947 and added to the Herman Miller line in 1954, George Nelson's Bubble Lamp line became an instant mid-century modern classic. As design trends changed, Bubble Lamps were discontinued in 1979 but later revived for homeowners in the late 90s when demand for midcentury designs resurged. Bring a piece of design history home with Bubble Lamps, which are also permanently on display at the MoMA in New York. Made in the USA by Herman Miller.

  • A rain storm on the Yale campus in 1926 forced a young student to take refuge within the confines of the architectural school. Captivated by the work he saw during his respite from the rain, a young George Nelson changed the course of design history by choosing to study Architecture and Fine Arts at Yale, graduating with degrees in both in 1931. After earning the prestigious "Rome Prize" from the American Academy of Rome, Nelson took to the vibrant landscape of Europe's design world. It was during this time that Nelson used his journalistic approach to learning by documenting and interviewing some of the most iconic designers of the time period.

    Influenced by the vast range of conceptual thought within Europe, Nelson took his myriad ideas back to the United States where he worked for Architectural Forum as an editor, showcasing his unique understanding of American modernism and seeking designs and products that created solutions rather than fitting into the mold of aging design concepts. This concept of creating solutions through interior and product design led Nelson to publish a book, "Tomorrow's House" in which he deconstructed design cliches and mainstays by stripping them down to their conceptual uses. This unique and ultimately revolutionary perspective caught the eye of Herman Miller executive, D.J. Depree, who sought to hire George as Herman Miller's next Director of Design. D.J. Depree saw the raw talent and vision of George Nelson as an incredible untapped opportunity within the world of furniture design.

    From 1947 to 1972, George Nelson and Herman Miller would go on to create some of the lasting furniture designs of the 20th century, utilizing Nelson's varied perspective, and Herman Miller's wide reach and production capabilities to attract some of the most talented designers of the time period. Using his successes at Herman Miller, George Nelson opened his own design studio and label in 1947. From 1947 until the closure of the studio in the mid-1980s, George worked with nearly every Fortune 500 company in existence, influencing American culture and design through his pragmatic use of furniture and space.

Purchased a pair in Dec. 18. The chains became harder and harder to pull until one chain pulled out entirely. I contacted Herman Miller asking about repair (I know the warranty is limited to one year) and was told by the local retailer they referred me to that the lamp is unrepairable. Unfortunately a typical lamp repair person can't simply fix the socket because they can't get the bubble portion off to access the socket. This is an awful lot of money to spend on a lamp with a 20 month lifespan. They are also a matched set so I basically have two dead, useless lamps on my hands.
