Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) maintained a prolific forty-year career on two continents, Europe and North America, with achievements in industrial design, interior design and architecture. She owned modern design shops in her native Stockholm and her adopted city of Los Angeles, and can be credited with significantly influencing Southern California with her Scandinavian design aesthetic. She designed both furniture and lighting for over a dozen companies and taught at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Her projects, both design and architecture, were published in innumerable international publications and received awards worldwide.
Since 1998, R Gallery has been committed to the preservation of Grossman's vital contributions to 20th century design. The gallery houses a large portion of her estate, including original drawings and photographs, which can be viewed by appointment. In 2010 we worked with the Arkitekturmuseet in Stockholm on a major traveling exhibition of her work and accompanying monograph which is available in our shop.
