Organic sense of personality
Evoking the form of its namesake insect clinging to a blade of grass, the Gräshoppa Floor Lamp set the standard for the rest of the collection, which brought an organic sense of dynamism and personality to the gravitas of midcentury design.
An iconic design first conceived in 1940’s California, the Gräshoppa Collection is now sought after by design aficionados the world over, demonstrating the longevity of its appeal.
GRETA M. GROSSMAN
Greta M. Grossman (1906–1999) was an innovator in the male-dominated worlds of mid-century industrial and interior design and architecture, gaining international recognition for her work.
She was born and educated in Sweden, setting up Studio – her first combined store and workshop – in Stockholm the same year she married musician Billy Grossman. With the onset of the Second World War, the pair emigrated to California where she worked as an architect. She was among the first to bring the Scandinavian modern aesthetic to southern California’s burgeoning modernist scene.
Carefully curated and intuitively iconic. That's been the spirit of GUBI since 1967. Rediscovering the heart of historical pieces and seeing how a contemporary vibe can help us write new chapters and find harmony in the eclectic.
