An object in MoMA’s collection, the Cobra Table Lamp was designed by Greta Magnusson Grossman in the late 1940s and was exhibited in the U.S. Pavilion at the 1951 Milan Triennale. The Cobra Lamp draws its name from its serpentine arm and wide oval shade that mimics the body and hooded head of a cobra snake. The lamp’s tubular, flexible arm can be bent in all directions, allowing the shade to be rotated a full 360 degrees. This allows you to create a wide range of lighting possibilities, from direct light at your desk to a softer light in your living room when the shade is pointed downward or toward a wall. 


The Cobra Table Lamp is made from powder-coated aluminum shade and base, with a chromed steel arm. It measures 13.5h x 6.6"diam. with a 67” black cord. The Cobra Lamp requires a 4W–6W LED bulb (not included). A groundbreaking design for its time, the Cobra Lamp was featured in MoMA’s 1952–1953
Good Design exhibition and again in the 2019 exhibition The Value of Good Design.
