Here’s what Room & Board’s website says about the Nelson bubble light above:
“Part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, Propeller is part of the sculptural Bubble collection designed by George Nelson. Nelson’s Bubble lighting became instant icons of mid-century modernism when introduced in 1947. Propeller is constructed of a steel wire frame and covered with translucent plastic, emitting a soft, even light.”
