This floor lamp riffs on the iconic table model of Cobra with its unique flexible-arm concept. It can be pointed in all directions, serving as a useful reading light or to create striking effects when directed towards a wall. Greta M. Grossman’s groundbreaking 1950s creation was first inspired by the shape of a cobra's neck and is one of the celebrated designer’s most recognizable works.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
