CHICAGO, IL.- A suite of Greta Grossman furniture will highlight Hindman’s Modern Design auction on May 24.

The sale will also include works by celebrated designers such as c, Dale Chihuly, Hans J. Wegner, Erik Kolling Andersen, and Karl Springer.

“Greta Grossman was a true innovator in the world of modernism,” commented Hudson Berry, Hindman Director & Senior Specialist of Modern Design. “We are excited to be able to bring to market this one-of-a-kind suite. It is not often that these types of Grossman designs are offered at auction.”

Greta Grossman

The rare furniture suite by the iconic Swedish designer and architect Greta Grossman comes from the Estate of Jeannette and Harold Strohm, Lafayette, Louisiana. Grossman achieved early success in her career while working in Sweden, including becoming the first woman to receive a prize for furniture design from the Swedish Society of Industrial Design in 1933. Grossman played an integral role in the development of California modernism. While Grossman has for years been overlooked in the history of Modernism, her work has finally begun to garner the admiration it deserves. The present works are part of the ‘62 Series designed in 1952 as a line for the future of domestic comfort and modernity. The series encapsulates Grossman’s melding of Scandinavian and American influences that appealed to her celebrity clientele.
