GMG Chaise Longue

By Greta M. Grossman

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 the mid-century design. 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. The GMG Chaise Longue shows a strong interest in merging functionality and comfort, while simultaneously remaining a delicate and powerful design language, revealing unique, light and iconic touches. Representing a literal link between European design and Californian modernism, Grossman designed the GMG Chaise Longue by successfully combining her Swedish fondness for colour and texture with the opportunities allowed by bright and open spaces of Southern California.

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.
