Great Mid-Century Designers 101: Greta Grossman

03 May, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Greta Grossman has been described as a female pioneer and design icon, a mover and shaker in the male-dominated world of mid-century architecture and design. Her career trajectory is an interesting one: breaking barriers in her native Sweden; achieving fame and acquiring an A-list clientele after relocating to Los Angeles; and falling into obscurity from the 1960s until very recently when a 2010 exhibit of her work helped re-establish her name, returning this “unsung hero” of design to “her rightful place as a pivotal pioneer of mid-century modernism.”

Great Danish Designers 101: Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen

30 November, 2016 2 comments Leave a comment

Peter Hvidt trained as an architect and cabinetmaker in Copenhagen. He created his influential Portex chair in 1944 but would realize his biggest achievement in 1950 with the AX chair, designed in partnership with architect and furniture designer Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen. The two worked together for 31 years, designing pieces for renowned Danish manufacturers like Fritz Hansen, France & Son, and Søborg Møbelfabrik. Scandinavian Modern notes that a common feature of the partners’ work was the construction of designs in solid wood, including “classics” like their storage units, day beds, and tables that are still highly sought after today.
