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 iconic Grasshopper series was first produced in 1947. The design of the 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 shade can be tilted and rotates 360°. It is available in jet black, anthracite grey, blue grey, matt white, vintage red, andorra red, or oyster white, on a brass base.
