Grasshopper floor lamp, 1947

Grasshopper floor lamp by Greta Grossman for Gubi.

The Grasshopper (or Gräshoppa) floor lamp was designed by Greta Magnusson Grossman, a Swedish born designer who was one of the first-ever female to graduate from the famous Stockholm Konstfak School of industrial design.

Already a successful designer with her own studio in Stockholm, she emigrated to the US with her Jazz musician husband to escape WWII. Her career peaked during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s alongside the Californian design movement. She was highly influenced by European modernism, which shows through the design of the Grasshopper series.

The design of the grasshopper table light, pendant light, and the floor lamp are both organic and modern, fulfilling a need of her time for lightness and functionality, which is still very much current.

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

Bulb (not included): E14, 470lm (~40W incandescent ~28W halogen ~4-6W LED).
