After finishing a one-year woodworking apprenticeship in her hometown of Helsingborg in the late 1920s, Greta Magnusson Grossman was awarded a scholarship to enroll at Konstfack, the renowned Stockholm arts and design institution. In 1933, Grossman and Konstfack classmate Erik Ullrich opened Studio, a store and workshop in Stockholm. From there, she took on numerous commissions designing unique furniture and interiors, which garnered positive attention and accolades. This 1937 coffee table was designed by Grossman for retail at Studio and was generously featured in the Swedish press as well as in Domus magazine.
Coffee table in birch with thick round glass top. Produced for Grossman's store, Studio, Sweden, circa 1937. Good original condition.
