Greta M. Grossman's iconic G-10 Floor Lamp, with its unusual angled stance, dates from 1950 and has been revived in the authentic Swedish version by Gubi. The lamp is characterized by its distinctive wide lampshade which spreads broad and pleasant illuminations over its surroundings. A contrast between the black powder-coat surface and polished brass details hints at both the industrial inspiration and the final refinement of Grossman's enduring design philosophy.

“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.”
