‘Grasshopper’ floor lamp by Greta Grossman reissued by Gubi

Danish furniture and lighting manufacturer Gubi has reissued this famous modernist ‘Grasshopper’ floor lamp designed in 1947 by the Swedish-born architect and designer Greta Grossman. The slender, elegantly curved steel-and-aluminium lamp maintains most of its original features and has been re-relased in five muted shades such as anthracite grey, warm grey, blue-grey, jet black and vintage red.

Grossman’s groundbreaking series of iconic lamp designs from the 1940s, which along ‘Grasshopper’ also include the award-winning ‘Cobra Lighting Fixture’, were originally created for the Barker Brothers’ Modern Shop which launched in Beverly Hills in 1947 and were later produced by an American lighting manufacturer Ralph O. Smith.
