The design for this iconic Gräshoppa pendant emerged from Great M. Grossman’s original lamp design from 1947, using the signature steel shade that successfully combines lightness and functionality into a modern yet organic character. The distinctive, elongated conical shade is a great example of Grossman’s whimsical design language, that is both organic and modern
The Gräshoppa Pendant Lamp brings not only a perfect, functional addition but can also be used as a sophisticated light object in any room.
The lampshade has seven colour ways: Andorra red, Anthracite grey, Black, Dusty Blue, Oyster White, Vintage Red and White.
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.
