Running until May 16, 2010, at Arkitekturmuseet, the Greta Magnusson Grossman Retrospective highlights the career of a Swedish furniture and architect. Though not as famous as some of her contemporaries (Eames, for example), Grossman played an integral roll in introducing Swedish design to the American market. She moved from Stokholm to the United States in 1940. Her lamps for Barker Brothers became icons, and the unique mix of materials in her furniture collections for Glenn of California spawned many imitators.

The retrospective comes in conjuction with the release of Greta Magnessun Grossman: A  Car and Some Shorts, a new book detailing the designers life and work. (via Wallpaper*).
