The Greatest Designers from GUBI

Greta Magnusson Grossman (1906-1999) had a career lasting over 40 years designing in both Europe and America. Her most famous designs are probably “Gräshoppa” and “Cobra” – two timeless and iconic lamps. Grossman was very inspired by modernism, especially the two architects, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe. After she immigrated to America she took part in defining the Californian variety of Modernism in the 40s. Grossman has designed unique and timeless lamps that will find its place in any home.
