Description Wim Rietveld, Gispen, ‘6320’ grasshopper floor lamp, The Netherlands 1953. Important post-war design, this very rare adjustable floor light model ‘6320’ by Dutch designer Wim Rietveld who made the design for the Dutch Gispen company in 1953. After 1953 it was only produced for a couple of years, and the production stopped as soon as the famous Panama light turned out to be a greater commercial success for the company. The striking asymmetrical position of the insect-like base together with the optimistic color scheme are typical hallmarks of modern fifties design, and though it was designed for more than 60 years ago, it still evokes a remarkable timeless atmosphere as well. Mark the great finishing details; the construction of the mechanism of the adjustable lightweight arm and aluminum shade, the wiring that has been decently covered, the solid metal heavy base and the heavy-duty floor switch. The Dutch Gispen furniture company was founded in 1916 by industrial designer Willem Hendrik Gispen (1890-1981) and mainly produced steel ( tubular ) furniture for home and office. Until the 1960ies of the 20th century, the company worked with several famous Dutch designers such as Gerrit Rietveld, Wim Rietveld, and Andre Cordemeyer.
