Designed by George Nelson, this beautiful mid-century inspired pendant, made from lightweight steel and sprayed polymer, boasts an extra large spherical silhouette. Part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this extra-large light can stunningly fill a space with a soft diffused illumination as it floats overhead, creating a relaxed and tranquil ambience.
George Nelson read architecture at the renowned Yale University and completed his studies at the American academy in Rome. He was editor in chief of the 'Architectural Forum' from 1935 to 1944.
After having set up his own Architecture and Industrial design company in 1946, he began collaborating with Vitra in 1957. His pieces, such as the Coconut chair, his clocks and the Marshmallow Sofa, are regarded highly amongst the 20th Century design classics.
