contemporary chest of drawers / American walnut / rectangular / brown
62 6 by Greta M. Grossman
Designed in 1952 by Greta M. Grossman, but named the 62 Dresser as it was deemed to be ten years ahead of its time. The drawer illustrates the designer’s penchant for exceptional shapes and unusual pairing of materials.
The slender metal legs with ball shaped feet, a characteristic trait of Grossman, contrasts the sharp rectangular shape in luxurious American walnut, giving the furniture a characteristic appearance of lightness and almost seeming to defy gravity. Adding to its elegancy, the drawer is provided with a deep, black full gloss finish on table top and small solid wooden spheres.
