Design Greta Grossman, 1947
Brass base, aluminum, textile cord
Made in Denmark by Gubi

The most iconic products Greta Grossman designed in the 40's and 50's were the Gräshoppa floor lamp and the Cobra floor and table lamps. Grossman was highly influenced by European Modernism, which had been imported to the US by influencial architects, such as Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Grossman, in turn, played a significant role in defining the aesthetic of mid-century Californian Modernism.

The iconic Gräshoppa lamp was first produced in 1947. The elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm; so the light can be directional, yet the glare is minimal. The base is brass and the shade is powder-coated in a choice of colors. The interior of the shade is white. The Gräshoppa lamp shade can be tilted and rotated 360º. On/off switch on textile cord.

Today, Grossman's product designs are highly collectible and are sold at auctions all around the world. Grossman's products are unique, modern classic designs.
