Grasshopper Light Grey-Blue
  • Grasshopper Floor Lamp
    conranshop.co.uk
    The unmistakable silhouette of the Grasshopper Floor lamp has become an icon of mid-twentieth century design. The original lamp, designed in the 1940s and 50s 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 Waletr 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. First produced in 1947, the tubular steel tripod stand is tilted backwards, while an elongated aluminium conical shade is ball-jointed onto the arm, in order to direct the light precisely. Both the stand and the shade are powder-coated for protection, and the contemporary model takes a 60W bulb (not included). Dimension: 43.5cm (w)x 125.5cm (d)

  • Gubi Cobra Lamp
    design55online.co.uk
    Winner of the 1950 Good Design Award, the Gubi Grossman Cobra Table Lamp was reissued in 2011. Its designer, Greta Grossman, was a hugely talented pioneering female designer who left her native Stockholm in 1933 to emigrate to the States, where she lived in Los Angeles with her jazz musician husband. She brought with her many European influences – particularly the Bauhaus movement – and over her 42 years as a designer played a considerable part in the shaping of Californian Modernism. Grossman’s designs are unique and iconic, and many decades ahead of their time – yet they are practical and functional too. It is for this reason that Gubi have re-launched her work – this almost forgotten female designer is highly deserving of a comeback. The Cobra takes its name from the shape of its powder painted aluminium shade which rotates through 360 degrees. A flexible, move-in-any-direction tubular arm connects it to a solid cast iron ballast. There is an on/off switch on the ballast cover. It benefits from 1.7 metres of fabric cable. Dimensions. Height: 34.5 cm. Diameter (ballast): 16.5 cm. Diameter (shade): 29 cm. Bulb: 1 x E14 40W. Chose from Anthracite, Black, Grey, Vintage Red or Warm Beige. The Cobra is strong and stylish and works well in both Modernist and Retro interiors. Although only recently re-released, it has a product familiarity earned both through its bio-mimetic shade and its appearance in fifties film noir and American super-hero comics. Although they have their roots in Denmark, Design House Gubi are eclectic and intercontinental and blur the lines between past, present and future. They are fuelled by overlooked designs from the past and see themselves as treasure seekers. In short, this great lamp has a fascinating history – and an assured future. It’s a collector’s piece that deserves a place in any design conscious home environment.
  • Gubi Pedrera Ana Pendant Black
    shophorne.com
    Many architects and furniture designers of the Bauhaus era were intent on providing well-designed homes and impeccably manufactured furnishings for the "common man". in 1955, Barba Corsini, a leading functionalist architect, realised his contemporary vision through his renovation of the loft space and the furnishings he custom designed for "La Pedrera". Antoni Gaudi, who originally designed "La Pedrera", is generally consideredthegreat master of Spanish Modernism but his unique body of work cannot be defined by any single style or simple classification. Corsini was a great admirer of Finnish architecture, which he believed to be the finest in Europe on account of the powerful simplicity of the designs. 'Powerful simplicity' is indeed an apt description of Corsini's personal design style, as represented by the Pedrera series. The Pedrera lamps are both modern and classic. Some of the lamps were designed by Barba Corsini, others in association with his protegé, Joaquim Ruiz Millet. One lamp, the ANA pendant, was designed by Ruiz Millet as a tribute to Corsini.
  • Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp
    design55online.co.uk
    Designed by Robert Dudley Best and in continuous production in the UK since 1930, the Bestlite BL4 Floor Lamp is part of the UK’s unique contribution to the Bauhaus movement. Made of chromed steel and powder painted aluminium, it features a large adjustable cantilevered arm which is used to lift or raise the lamp’s height, and the shade itself swivels and tilts for fine adjustment – making this a perfect working light as well as a smart-looking floor lamp with a long and fascinating history. Heir to a large lighting factory in Birmingham, Best first came under the influence of Les Corbusier and Miles van der Rohe at the Paris Design Expo during a cultural visit in the late twenties. Transformed by the experience he eventually convinced his reluctant father to put his own Bauhaus influenced designs into production. The results were disastrous and bankruptcy seemed inevitable – until Winston Churchill installed a Bestlite in his war-time cabinet, and Best’s reputation was salvaged. Available in chrome with shade and base cover in white, off-white or black, it has a foot switch on the 2 metre long black fabric cord. Dimensions: Shade height: 18 cm. Shade diameter: 21 cm. Height: 120 – 280 cm. Reach: 116 cm. Recommended for use with a 28 W Halogen bulb. A favourite among designers, architects and design aficionados for its remarkable pedigree and iconic, industrial style, the BL4 is on permanent display in the V&A and the Design Museum in London. It is equally at home in contemporary and traditional interiors.

  • Bestlite BL2 Desk Lamp Black
    conranshop.co.uk
    The origin of the Bestlite stems from a period of revolutionary change known as Bauhaus, which was a rebellion against tradition and sought to bring simplicity to the forefront. English designer Robert Dudley Best drew the first sketches of the light that would be proclaimed as the first Bauhaus manifestation in England during 1930 while studying in Paris and Dussledorf. The light was initially favoured by car mechanics on account of its adjustability; however the swan-necked lamp entered the nation's consciousness when it was pictured on Winston Churchill's desk in his air-raid shelter beneath Whitehall during World War II. First produced by the manufacturing firm Best & Lloyd, founded by Best's family in 1840, in 2004 the Danish design firm GUBI took over the international rights for the Bestlite collection. Best is now recognised as one of the great English designers of the 20th century and the BestLite remains an elegant testimony to his work. It is made from aluminium and its stem and shade are both adjustable enabling the user to shine light wherever needed. Max 40 W E14 (bulb not included). Dimension: 48cm (h)
  • & Tradition Bellevue Desk Lamp
    design55online.co.uk
    The Bellevue Desk Lamp is part of &tradition’s Bellevue family of coordinated lamps. It was designed in 1929 by Arne Jacobsen who was inspired by the Bauhaus movement and the possibilities created by the then new technology making high quality tubular steel affordable. With a strong steel frame and three metres of fabric cord, what is really striking about this iconic lamp is the 45 degree cut shade made of lacquered aluminium. Not only does this look cool – it directs light downwards while avoiding excessive glare. This is perfect for reading or browsing on a tablet or ipad. Jacobsen himself was so enamoured of the design it reappeared over and over again in his work – most famously in his Bellevue petrol station. The simple swan-neck frame and clean, sturdy construction reflects the modernist ambitions of Le Corbusier and his contemporaries – ignoring the vagaries of fashion and pursuing instead the higher values of style and design. &tradition are a Nordic outfit dedicated to respecting the environment through the design of products that will pass the test of time and bring joy to their owner’s and user’s lives.

  • Christian Dell Kaiser-idell Tiltable Floor Lamp
    dwr.com
    German silversmith Christian Dell was a metalworking teacher at the Bauhaus from 1922–25. Collaborating with modernist luminaries László Moholy-Nagy and Marianne Brandt, Dell helped shape the Bauhaus approach to industrial lighting. He started designing lighting for various companies in 1926, including Gebrüder Kaiser & Co., the one that produced the first lamp in the Kaiser-idell Collection (1931). With the first part of the name being for the factory that produced it, the latter is an amalgam of Dell and idee , the German word for “idea.” Brought back into production by Fritz Hansen in 2011, the collection is crafted to the designer’s original specifications, including his worldwide-patented swivel joint for shade adjustability – revolutionary in 1931.

  • Greta Grossman Cobra Wall Sconce
    dwr.com
    Swedish architect and designer Greta Magnusson Grossman broke through gender barriers to embark on a prolific career. In 1940, she and her husband immigrated to the United States, where her approach to Swedish modernism struck a chord with single, professional women who felt that she understood their needs and sensibilities. She opened a store on Rodeo Drive, where her furniture and accessories quickly drew the attention of clients such as Greta Garbo, Joan Fontaine and Gracie Allen. In the 1950s, she founded her architecture office and designed 14 homes – 13 in California and one in Sweden – each one a showcase for her quietly dramatic approach. The Cobra Lamp (1950), with a profile evoking the flared hood of its namesake, has an oval shade that rotates 360 degrees to direct light where needed. This is an authentic Grossman lamp, produced to the designer’s original specifications. Bulb (not included): incandescent 40W/E12 or comparable CFL. Made in Denmark.
