Gräshoppa Desk Lamp Matt White



The unmistakable silhouette of the Gräshoppa Desk lamp has become an icon of mid-twentieth century design.

The original Gräshoppa lamp, designed in the 1940s by the late Californian-based, but Swedish-born Gretta Grossman, was heavily influenced by European modernism. The continental movement was imported to the US by celebrated architects, such as Walter Gropius - founder of the Bauhaus- and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Grossman herself played an important role in shaping the aesthetic of mid-century North American modernism.

Mounted on a brass base, the desk lamp's distinctive tubular stand is tilted backward, while the elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm; so the light can be directional, yet the glare is minimal. The elegant gold stand is beautifully offset with a powder-coated shade for a smart finish.

Requires 1 x E27 Max 42W bulb (not included).
