Grasshopper pendant lamp

By Gubi


  • Description

    The most iconic products Greta Grossman designed in the 40's and 50's 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 influencial 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.

    The Gräshoppa shade is fixed with a brass tube and brass fittings on the top. For mounting on the ceiling, the pendant is equipped with a steel bracket covered by a half round sphere canopy in brass and a brass tube. The powder-coated shade is available in 4 colours: matt white, anthracite grey, jet black and blue-grey.

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