Functionality & comfort
Built in a shape designed for relaxation it mirrors the body’s natural curves while appearing to float above its distinctive slender legs – a genuine signature of Greta M. Grossman’s work.
GMG CHAISE LONGUE
The GMG Chaise Longue was designed in 1951 by Greta M. Grossman and with playful elegance it is perfectly angled for lounging whilst preserving all the streamlined qualities of a mid-century design.
GRETA M. GROSSMAN
Greta M. Grossman (1906–1999) was an innovator in the male-dominated worlds of mid-century industrial and interior design and architecture, gaining international recognition for her work.
She was born and educated in Sweden, setting up Studio – her first combined store and workshop – in Stockholm the same year she married musician Billy Grossman. With the onset of the Second World War, the pair emigrated to California where she worked as an architect. She was among the first to bring the Scandinavian modern aesthetic to southern California’s burgeoning modernist scene.
