    Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) was a prolific designer working within the male-dominated world of mid-century modern design, whose status and influence has been largely ignored. Grossman was the ultimate polymath: an industrial designer, interior designer, and architect working within the fascinating contexts of Scandinavia and North America.

     

    This book gives an overview of Grossman's background, education, and the formative years of her career in Sweden, before describing her move to Los Angeles in 1940. While she is remembered for her work as a product and lighting designer, her work as an interior designer has been almost entirely overlooked.

     

    This book catalogs and emphasizes the significance of her contribution to interior design. It positions her contributions in relation to the canon of genres to which she contributed, her discipline, and the emerging canon of women designers who are only now being recognized, while considering her enduring legacy upon the world of design today.
