The GM lamp is a resurrected design, pulled directly from Grethe Meyer’s original sketches from May 1984. Now, 30years later, we have the pleasure, and honor, of putting the 'Grethe Meyer Lamp' into production for the first time.
Grethe Meyer is one of Denmark's most distinguished representatives of the Danish industrial design. She was a designer and architect and won numerous awards for her work. She lived from 1918-2008, and was in many ways a pioneer woman, working in a highly male dominated field in times where some still thought of women as mediocre. Asthe stories go Grethe Meyer always had her firm beliefs and was never afraid to use them. Her work was very systematic and thorough as she analyzed details like people's eating habits or space limitations in their homes, and used her knowledge to create products that were not only beautiful, but also very much usable and practical.
