Gräshoppa Floor Lamp

Greta Grossman, 1947


The most iconic products Greta Grossman designed in the 40s and 50s 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 influential 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. Today, her designs are highly collectible and sold at auction houses around the world.

The iconic Grasshopper Floor Lamp has a tubular steel tripod stand, which is tilted backwards while the elongated aluminum conical shade is mounted onto a flexible arm. Consequently, the light can be directional, yet the glare is minimal.
