The iconic Gräshoppa Floor Lamp was first produced in 1947 by the feminine pioneer Greta M. Grossman. The unique tripod stand of the Gräshoppa Floor Lamp is tilted backward and gives the impression that the lamp is somehow alive and stalking its prey. Being one of Grossman’s most iconic designs, the authentic lamp has an elongated conical shade that rotates to direct light where needed.
Organic sense of personality
Evoking the form of its namesake insect clinging to a blade of grass, the Gräshoppa Floor Lamp set the standard for the rest of the collection, which brought an organic sense of dynamism and personality to the gravitas of midcentury design.
Modernist style and classic elegance
The collection also includes the Gräshoppa Table Lamp; the rotating shade of which echoes the floor lamp’s ability to direct light where needed. Completing the collection, the Gräshoppa Pendant also features the same elongated conical shade design, bringing a modernist style and classic elegance to any kitchen counter or dining table.
An organic profile
The Gräshoppa Floor Lamp is one of Grossman’s most well-known designs. With a tubular steel tripod base on a backward diagonal slant, its unmistakable silhouette gives the impression of a grasshopper clinging to a blade of grass. Part of a collection designed in 1947, the floor lamp has an organic profile that was a breath of fresh air within the gravitas of mid-century modernism.
