Grasshopper Floor Lamp
Swedish designer Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906â€“1999) was an architect, designer and modernist who broke through gender barriers to embark on a prolific career. In 1940, she and her husband immigrated to the United States, where her approach to Swedish modernism struck a cord with single, professional women who felt that she understood their needs and sensibilities. She opened a store on Rodeo Drive, and her furniture and accessories drew the attention of new clients like Greta Garbo, Joan Fontaine and Gracie Allen. In the 1950s, she founded her one-woman architecture office and designed 14 homes in Los Angeles, each one a unique showcase for her quietly dramatic approach. The Grasshopper Lamp (1947) has a tripod stand and elongated conical shade that rotates so you can direct the light where needed. This is an authentic Grossman lamp, produced to the designerâ€™s original specifications. Bulb (not included): incandescent 40W/110V/E12 or CFL. Made in Denmark.
Materials: Powder-coated steel; solid brass hardware; fabric-covered chord.
