Description

Originally designed in the 1950s, this table lamp is one of the most recognizable works of design icon Greta M. Grossman. Cobra takes its name from the shape of the oval shade, which is reminiscent of the serpent’s neck. A groundbreaking concept, it nabbed the Good Design Award at the time and was subsequently exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Uniquely classic, the tubular flexible arm can be bent in all directions, allowing the shade to be rotated all 360 degrees for maximum utility.

Brand

Gubi

Now led creatively by the couple’s son Jacob Gubi Olsen, Danish brand Gubi was originally founded in 1967 as a vehicle for the modernist furniture designs and textile catalog of husband-and-wife Gubi and Lisbeth Larson. Under Jacob’s watch, the company added a global focus to its roots in Copenhagen with a cosmopolitan array of furniture, lighting and interior objects. Alongside standouts from the 20th century, he has introduced a new generation of designers from companies such as GamFratesi, Space Copenhagen and OeO Studio.

“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.”
