Tribute: The Gräshoppa (iconic designs series)


Let's talk about Greta Grossman.

Greta Grossman (1906-1999) focused on industrial design, interior design and architecture. In the 40's and 50's she exhibited her designs at museums worldwide, including MoMA in New York and The National Museum in Stockholm. The most iconic products Greta Grossman designed in the 40's and 50's were the Gräshoppa floor lamp and the Cobra floor and table lamps. The latter won the Good Design Award in 1950 and was subsequently exhibited at the Good Design Show at the Museum of Modern Art.

Now, imagine that this design was launched in 1947...

Modernism at its best.
