the new george nelson: a giveaway
Bubble Lamps are perhaps the most recognizable works from George Nelson’s large collection of product designs, but they are not the only lighting fixtures he ever created. Modernica is now bringing back an exceptionally rare, less known George Nelson design – the Net Light. And we’re giving one away this week to one very lucky mid-century modernist!
The George Nelson Net Light® series was released by Howard Miller Clock Company in 1959 and less than 1000 were ever produced. The series of pendant lamps were constructed of fine, web-coated plastic netting that was stretched over metal rings to create interesting geometric shapes. The lights were designed so that they could be attached to each-other in different combinations to form “chains” of pendant lamps that hung down from the ceiling in long, unique stacks. Today, only a scarce few of the original Net Lights survive, with fewer still in decent condition. So Modernica decided to bring back the Net Light, resurrecting a rare component of George Nelson design history and recreated the Net Light using the same specifications and materials used in the original design.
