Greta Grossman Cobra Floor Lamp, Anthracite Grey

$879per item

About

The distinctive Cobra floor lamp designed by Greta M. Grossman in the 1950s is inspired by the shape of a cobra’s neck, which is not surprisingly also the motivation for its name. The Cobra floor lamp is a classic and yet unique lamp that with its flexible arm can be bent in all directions, creating a pleasant reading light or an artistic light when directed towards the wall. The shade is movable by its flex arm and can be rotated 360°. The textile cord is black on all models. Switch on cord.

Customization Options

Finishes: Warm Grey, Vintage Red, Dusty Blue, Black, Anthracite Grey

About Greta Magnusson-Grossman (Designer)

Designer and architect Greta Magnusson-Grossman first gained fame in her native Sweden, where she established her store and workshop and became the first woman to receive a prize for furniture design from the Swedish Society of Industrial Design. In 1940, she married jazz musician Billy Grossman and moved to Los Angeles.


Upon her arrival in Southern California, she opened the Magnusson-Grossman Studio on Rodeo Drive and rapidly became popular among the Hollywood elite, including Greta Garbo and Gracie Allen. In addition to creating iconic furniture and lighting — like the Grasshopper series for Barker Bros. or the Cobra lamp for Ralph O. Smith — Magnusson-Grossman designed 14 homes in the Los Angeles area inspired by the Case Study Houses. Combining her Scandinavian roots with laid-back West Coast style, she became a notable contributor to California modernism.
