Greta M. Grossman’s table lamp B-4 aptly epitomizes her career as a female avatar in the male-dominated midcentury design world. Launched in 1945, the light is characterized by its colorful and movable visors that allow illumination to diffuse softly amid its surroundings. The stilt base also recalls Greta’s cantilevered houses built in the hills of Southern California, when she relocated from her native Sweden and was among the first to bring the Scandinavian modern aesthetic to American shores.

“I started out with two very strong designs, Bestlite—a Bauhaus collection designed in 1930—and Gubi Chair, designed in 2003” Jacob says (both available at A+R). “I felt they had something in common,” he continues. “Iconic appearance, functional design, high quality, aesthetic design language and adaptable for many different kinds of interiors. I took these values as a guideline for any new designs added to the collection ever since.”
