Grasshopper table lamp, 1947

Grasshopper table lamp by Greta Grossman for Gubi.

The Grasshopper (or Gräshoppa) table 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 iconic Grasshopper series was first produced in 1947. The design of the table light, pendant light and 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: E14 max 30W (not included).

Quickship is available, please enquire for more details.
