The George Nelson Wall Sconce for Herman Miller, available from HAY is part of the George Nelson Bubble Lamp series. A walnut wall mount and steel arm suspends the shade and lets the lamp fill any interior with a warm, diffused light. The lamp’s arm can be adjusted from left to right and up and down without having to change its position on the wall.

Designed by pioneering American designer George Nelson in 1947, and first produced in 1952, the Bubble Lamp signaled a revolution in the Modernist lighting industry. Available in an assortment of organic sizes and shapes, these elegant orbs were inspired by a set of silk-covered Swedish pendant lamps Nelson wanted for his office, but found to be too expensive. Employing the resourcefulness that characterised his working process, he decided to use a self-webbing plastic spray developed by the U.S. military, and applied it over a lightweight, rounded-steel frame to produce these soft, glowing fixtures.
