With its unmistakable silhouette, the Grasshopper Floor Lamp is one of Grossman’s most iconic designs. Hand-made from carbon steel, the insect-like design features a tripod stand, which has been tilted backwards for functionality and aesthetics. The conical shade can be rotated to any position, directing light to wherever you want it to go. This clever design ensures minimal glare. The Grasshopper Floor Lamp brings industrial style and classic elegance to any room, and works particularly well in bedrooms and lounges. It is available in black and has an on-off switch on the cable.
Grossman was a modernist designer who was influenced by both her European roots and Los Angeles lifestyle. Designed in 1947, her Grasshopper Lamp is a combination of organic and modern shapes, based on a common Californian insect, the grasshopper. Grossman injected her designs with a sense of humour and a preference to use materials that were not common at the time. This can be seen in the lamp’s asymmetric shape and industrial style.
