The Cobra lamp is very representative of Greta Grossman stule during the 40's and 50's The lamp won the Good Design Award and has been subsequently exhibited at the Good Design Show at the Museum of Modern Art. Grossman was highly influenced by European Modernism, which had been imported to the US by influencial 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. The Cobra lamp takes its name from the shape of the oval shade, which is reminiscent of a Cobra's neck. The tubular flexible arm can be bent in all directions and the shade can be rotated through 360º. The base is covered in powder-coated aluminium and weighted with a cast iron ballast. Today, Grossman's product designs are highly collectible and are sold at auctions all around the world. Grossman's products are unique, modern classic design.
