The GMG Chaise Longue has been created by Greta M. Grossman for the brand Gubi. The late Swedish industrial designer and architect Grossman was one of the few female designers to rise to prominence in the mid 20th Century. Her works are greatly influenced by European Modernism, which she merged with the American culture she adopted when she relocated to the US. The 1951 GMG Chaise Longue is one of her most popular designs. It stands out with its curves, which are designed to simulate the form of the human body. Its frame is made of solid pinewood and plywood and it stands on legs made from slim tubular powder-coated steel in a hairpin design which makes the piece look as if it is floating. Overall, it is a piece that is delicate and yet strong in design and structure. It is upholstered with Dedar Milano Karakorum col.001 ivory upholstery fabric. This premium quality bouclé wool and viscose fabric is inspired by precious astrakhan fur. It has a plush, soft look and feel.
The GMG Chaise Longue has a length of 148cm and a width of 70cm with a height of 83cm and a seat height of 24cm.
