Specification

Year 1949

The Modern Line Pouf is an evolution of the original Modern Line Sofa design from 1949 by Great M. Grossman and echoes its characteristic clean lines and feminine aesthetic.

The slender legs lend visual lightness and allows mobility when an extra seat is needed. The Modern Line Pouf, available in two sizes, is to be used as an expressive standalone occasional seat.


Greta M. Grossman

Greta Grossman (1906-1999) maintained a prolific forty-year career on two continents: Europe and North America. Her achievements were many and encompassed industrial design, interior design and architecture. In 1933, having successfully completed her fellowship at the renowned Stockholm arts institution, Konstfack, she opened Studio, a combined store and workshop. During the same year Grossman married jazz musician, Billy Grossman with whom she later emigrated to the United States, settling in Los Angeles.

Through the 40's and 50's Grossman exhibited her designs at museums worldwide, including MoMA in New York and The National Museum in Stockholm.

"The fact that she is relatively unknown just makes the process for Gubi more interesting, as we have an honest opportunity to continue to convey Greta Grossman's designs.Greta Grossman was known in her time in both Sweden and California, USA. However, she ended up largely unknown and almost forgotten. I am very happy that we can give this magnificent female designer a second comeback." - Jacob Gubi
