Extendable solid walnut dining table by Greta Magnusson Grossman. It extends from 160 to 220 cm. Grossman was an extremely influential figure in Swedish design and architecture scene in the 1930s, so much so that her career quickly expanded to whole Europe and North america. She was one of the first women to ever receive a Swedish design award. Her Stockholm-based shop was subsituted by her Los Angeles store when she emigrated to the US in 1940. Kerstin Holmquist, Carl Malmsten and Alf Svensson share her typically Scandinavian take on design.
