Greta Grossman (1906-1999) was a Swedish born Architect and Industrial Designer that had a prolific career that spanned two continents from Europe to the United States where she moved in 1940 and settled in Los Angeles. Grossman was well known for her stunning furniture and lighting designs as well as the modernist dwellings that she designed for the Hollywood hills and canyons. Interest in Grossman's work has been rekindled by Danish company Gubi that are relaunching two of her lighting designs 'Cobra' and 'Grasshopper'. The lights were shown at the recent Stockholm furniture fair. Inspirational stuff!
