ABOUT GRETA GROSSMAN: Greta Grossman (1906-1999) maintained a prolific forty-year career on the continents of Europe and North America. Her achievements were many, and encompassed industrial design, interior design and architecture. Having successfully completed her fellowship at the renowned Stockholm arts institution, Konstfack, in 1933 she opened Studio, a combined store and workshop. That same year, Grossman married jazz musician Billy Grossman, with whom she later emigrated to the United States, settling in Los Angeles.
Through the 40s and 50s, Grossman exhibited her designs at museums worldwide, including MoMA in New York and The National Museum in Stockholm.
"The fact that she is relatively unknown just makes the process for Gubi more interesting, as we have an honest opportunity to continue to convey Greta Grossman's designs.Greta Grossman was known in her time in both Sweden and California, USA. However, she ended up largely unknown and almost forgotten. I am very happy that we can give this magnificent female designer a second comeback." - Jacob Gubi
