Description from Design Within Reach

Swedish architect and designer Greta Magnusson Grossman 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 chord with single, professional women who felt that she understood their needs and sensibilities. She opened a store on Rodeo Drive, where her furniture and accessories quickly drew the attention of clients such as Greta Garbo, Joan Fontaine and Gracie Allen. In the 1950s, she founded her architecture office and designed 14 homes – 13 in California and one in Sweden – each one a showcase for her quietly dramatic approach. The Cobra Lamp (1950), with a profile evoking the flared hood of its namesake, has a flexible tubular arm and an oval shade that rotates 360 degrees to direct light where needed. This is an authentic Grossman lamp, produced to the designer’s original specifications. Bulb (not included): incandescent 40W/E12 or comparable CFL. Made in Denmark.

Materials : Powder-coated steel shade and base; chromed steel adjustable spine; solid brass hardware; fabric-covered cord.

Measurements : H 13.75″ W 11.5″ D 16.25″ Base Diameter 6.75″

Prices range from $318.50 to $455.00
