Architect George Nelson, Herman Miller’s design director from 1945 to 1972, once remarked, “Every truly original idea seems to find its most important expression in a chair.” And then he blew the doors off lighting design. While outfitting his office, Nelson discovered a silk-covered Swedish hanging lamp that he coveted but found too expensive, then recalled seeing a photo in the paper of Liberty ships being mothballed “by having the decks covered with netting and then being sprayed with a self-webbing plastic,” which got him thinking. “And then, Whammo!” Inspiration struck, and by the next night, Nelson had designed his first Bubble Lamp® (1952) by spinning a skeleton of steel wires on a turntable and shooting it with translucent plastic until it was covered in a smooth, washable film. “When you put a light in it, it glowed.” This is the authentic Bubble Lamp by Herman Miller, produced along with the George Nelson Foundation.

Use a feather duster, a clean soft white cloth, or vacuum with a clean soft brush attachment as needed. For stubborn stains, clean the surface using a soft clean white absorbent cloth with a solution of mild soap and warm water. Wipe down surfaces with the damp cloth and dry with a clean soft white cloth.
Avoid using glass cleaners, abrasive cleaning compounds, ammonia, or bleach; they may damage the surface of the plastic and result in discoloration. Make sure cleaning materials are free of grit and other foreign materials.
Brushed Nickel Base
Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks with pre-softened paste wax, following the instructions on the label. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.
Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish.
Wood & Veneer
Dust furniture with a slightly damp, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe dry with a dry, soft cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Spills should be immediately wiped up with a damp cloth.Once a month

Do not use aerosol-powered cleaners or polishes. Also, do not use polishes containing waxes or abrasives, or polishes that are oil based.
Rub the surface lightly in the direction of the wood grain using No. 000 steel wool. Apply a scratch-removing polish with a color and value that simulates the veneer. If the scratches are deep, consult a professional furniture refinisher.
