Gubi Grashoppa Floor Lamp


Time has not been very kind to Greta Grossman so it is appropriate and deserving that the work of this largely forgotten designer is undergoing something of a revival. Gubi have reissued two of her most influential lights the Gräshoppa and the Cobra in the hope that Gretta may take her rightful place alongside the more venerated and mostly male designers of the fifties and sixties. The wonderful Gräshoppa floor lamp was first produced in 1947 and is just as startling and original today as it was then. The tubular steel body is tilted backwards creating one of its three legs, each of which ends with a small disc foot. The elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm so that the light can be directed and any glare contained. The whole lamp is powdercoated in a range of muted near matt colours creating a mood of complete acceptance whatever its surroundings.
