Gubi Grashoppa Task Lamp

Greta Grossman created the Gräshoppa task lamp in 1947 and this luminaire has never lost its relevance in today’s design landscape. The lamp has become a collector’s item sold all over the globe due to the lights being suitable for both modern and classical interiors.

Grossman was highly influenced by European Modernism, which had been imported to the US by influential architects, such as Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

Grossman, in turn, played a significant role in defining the aesthetic of mid-century Californian Modernism. The iconic Gräshoppa lamp was first produced in 1947. The tubular steel tripod stand is tilted backward and the elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm; so the light can be directional, yet the glare is minimal. Both stand and shade are powder-coated.
