    In the 1930s, Marianne Richter was an intern at Märta Måås-Fjetterström. Her talent was instantly recognized by the company who invited her to take over the directorship, an offer which Richter declined. Later, Barbro Nilsson succeeded in recruiting her as a designer, a role in which Richter stayed active until her death in 2010.
