Nelson Ball Wall Sconce
by Herman Miller
At A Glance:
George Nelson designed his famous Nelson Bubble Lamps in 1952. Inspired by silken Swedish hanging lamps, he used newer technologies to replicate the gentle white light that he found so entrancing. Consisting of a sturdy metal frame and plastic shell, these famous light fixtures appear soft yet durable. The organic shape and neutral white color further adds to the timeless and approachable silhouette that these lamps will bring to your home or office.
The Nelson Ball Wall Sconce is a wall-mounted light fixture that looks good. You may not think that's too great, but consider how many sconces you've seen that made you remark at their beauty. That number is probably close to 0, but not anymore with this classic item from one of the world's greatest Mid-century designers.
