Nelson Ball Tripod Table Lamp


The Nelson Ball Tripod Lamp (1952) has a round, ribbed shade that looks like a delicate origami sculpture. But this translucent cover, an engineering marvel made via a technique Nelson pioneered for his Bubble Lamp, was inspired by the process the Navy used to mothball ships. Like all Ball Lamps, this table light is produced in collaboration with the George Nelson Foundation.
