The Grasshopper floor lamp

The Swedish-American designer and architect Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) was one of the big innovators during the 40’s. I just came across “The Grasshopper floor lamp” which she first produced in 1947 for the Ralph O Smith lighting company. A bended steel pipe forms the base while a curved sheet of ¬†aluminum is used as head. Simple yet beautiful, just the way we like it.
