Designed by George Nelson in 1947, this simplistic yet elegant pendant light echoes the traditional lantern shape, transformed into a minimal expression for contemporary spaces. Delicately hanging overhead with the support of a 6-foot cord and a robust ceiling rose, its geometric composition and muted colour palette compliment the subtle glow that radiates from within. Famous for being part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Nelson Lantern Bubble Pendant is the perfect addition to any space, radiating class and creating a relaxed 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.
