One of our favorite lamps of all time get a well-deserved re-release over at Modernica this week. The George Nelson Criss Cross lamps in flavors of Pear, Cigar, and Ball all make an appearance (Yeah, we realize the picture above is of the regular Bubble Lamp, which have been selling for quite some time). However, this particular style stopped being produced back in 1979, so we've been scouring eBay for quite some time for a good lookin' unit. Now, we can finally get 'em straight from the source. Woot!
(Updated, thanks for the clarification, mod-century!)
My favorite happens to be the Saucer Criss Cross Bubble Lamp. Just my luck that it also happens to be one of the most expensive ones in the re-release. Still, beats the $400-$500 price tags people were looking for them used on eBay just a few months ago.
You can take a look at (or better yet, buy) one from their collection of Bubble Lamps over here. Prices start at about $359 for the Criss Cross models. A bit high for a mere lamp, but hey, free shipping!
