George Nelson's Lantern Pendant Lamp is an unmistakable icon of the mid-century interior design movement, and the version is faithful to te original in every way. Its sculptural wire-frame shade cuts a dramatic silhouette that (literally) lights up the room, while the almost sheer material allows light to pass through it easily and add a warm, cosy feel to a room. And with its clean, minimalist colour scheme, there is a Lantern Pendant Lamp to match any decor.
THE STORY BEHIND THE GEORGE NELSON LANTERN PENDANT LAMP
Legendary for his experiments with form and structure, which included iconic clock, chair and table designs, Nelson's Lantern Pendant marked his most notable forray into lighting design. Applying the same principles of dynamic shapes and eye-catching use of materials to lighting as he had to his other media, he brought a freshness and a panache to 1950s American homes. As a result, the Lantern is as popular today as it was all those years ago, and still makes a real conversation-starting statement.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
1908-1986 (United States)
American industrial designer, George Nelson was one of the founders of American modernism. He was renowned for finding inspiration in the unlikeliest places. Instead of looking for a shape that resembled a human body, Nelson introduced the idea that anything could be turned into a unique furniture design. His most famous pieces are based on coconuts and marshmallows.
