Taking its name from the oval shade and neck that wittily resembles a snake’s hood, Greta M. Grossman's iconic light readily adapts to a wall version. The flexible shade can be adjusted 360 degrees, which creates a soft glow that spreads up the wall, making it the perfect illumination for entrances and hallways. In either plug-in or hard-wired models, it’s also a striking addition with timeless modernist appeal.

“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.”
