Gubi Grashoppa Table 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. This is the table task version, with its conical shade attached to an angled arm, mounted on a circular brass base with integrated on/off switch. The ball-jointed aluminium shade is elongated, so that the light can be directed and any glare contained, and is powder coated in a range of muted near matt colours which contrasts with the brass creating a mood of complete acceptance whatever its surroundings.
