This item is a one-off clearance item to be sold on a first order, first served basis.

The Grasshopper (or Gräshoppa) floor 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 design of the grasshopper table light, pendant light, and floor lamp is 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 collectible and are sold at auctions all around the world. Grossman's products are unique, modern classic designs.

The tubular steel tripod stand is tilted backward and the elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm. The light is directional, yet the glare is minimal.

Both stand and shade are semi matt powder-coated and are available in vintage red.

Shade can be rotated 360 degrees. Switch is black.

Supplied with 2.3m cord with switch located on cord.

Bulb (not included)
E14, 470lm (~40W incandescent ~28W halogen ~4-6W LED)

Shade dimension: 15dia x 23cm
