CONSTRUCTED WITH CARE
The iconic Grasshopper lamp designed by Greta Grossman was first produced in 1948. The tubular brass stand is mounted on a brass base whilst the elongated conical steel shade is mounted with a free moving joint in solid brass.
This two-part sculpture proved to be the most technically demanding due to its complex curves, and so the object never reached serial production. Then the Eames Elephant was made of plastic, which made it accessible for the target group for which it was originally designed: children.
ELEGANT AESTHETICAL EXPRESSION
Minimalist aesthetical expression of the lamp’s form perfectly matches its directed light and the interplay between the two – subtly colored form and the bright light – is what is at the root of the timeless appeal of the iconic Grasshopper table lamp.
