Gräshoppa Floor Lamp
Made by Gubi
The unique tripod stand of the Gräshoppa Floor Lamp is tilted backwards and gives the impression that the lamp is somehow alive and stalking its prey. Being one of Grossman’s most iconic designs, the authentic lamp has an elongated conical shade that rotates to direct light where needed.
The iconic Gräshoppa Floor Lamp was first produced in 1947 by the feminine pioneer Greta M. Grossman. Greta maintained a prolific forty-year career in both Europe and North America, and operated as mover and shaker in the male dominated world of mid-century modern design. Her achievements were many and encompassed industrial design, interior design and architecture. In 1933, she opened her studio and married jazz musician Billy Grossman.
