Greta Grossman "62 Series" Desk by Gubi
Design Greta M. Grossman, 1952
Designed in 1952 by Greta M. Grossman, but named the 62 Desk as it was deemed to be ten years ahead of its time. The 62 Desk appears characteristically light in weight and appears to defy gravity with its quirky asymmetric line and slender metal legs balancing on small wooden feet, a characteristic trait of its designer.
Its exceptional shape is emphasized with the elegant pairing of materials. The desk is made in American walnut and provided with a deep, black full gloss finish on table top and cabinet door. The desk features one left cabinet comprising of two low drawers and one high drawer.
Grossman was highly influenced by European Modernism, which had been imported to the US by influencial architects, such as Walter Gropius (founder of the Bauhaus) and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Grossman, in turn, played a significant role in defining the aesthetic of mid-century Californian Modernism.
Today, Grossman's product designs are highly collectible and are sold at auctions all around the world. Grossman's products are unique, modern classic designs.
Materials: American walnut and high gloss black laminate.
1 left cabinet comprising: 2 low drawers and 1 high drawer.
Tabletop and door in highgloss F 2253 AR + "Diamond Black" with painted edges.
