Design Greta Grossman, 1950
Cast iron, 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. The iconic Cobra table lamp, one of the products that immortalized Greta M. Grossman as a designer, won the Good Design Award in 1950 and was subsequently exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

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 Cobra table lamp features a tubular flexible arm that can be bent in all direction and the aluminum powder-coated shade can be rotated 360°. The Base is weighted with a cast iron ballast and covered with powder-coated aluminum. Includes black textile cord. On/off switch on base.

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.

Greta Grossman was one of the few female designers to gain prominence during the mid-20th century architectural scene in Los Angeles. Her early exposure to European Modernism deeply influenced her later architectural work, seen as a synthesis of European ideals and the culture with the lifestyle of Southern California.
