In 2011, Grima became the editor-in-chief of Domus, and stayed on till 2013.[7][23][24][21] He has also been Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture, NYC and the Artistic Director of Matera; European Capital of Culture 2019.[5] In 2013, together with Tamar Shafrir, Grima founded Space Caviar; an architecture and research studio operating at the intersection of design, technology, politics and the public realm.[25] One of the projects, FOMO algorithm-generated journalism machine, was presented in the 2014 Milan Design Week for automatically creating magazine articles from live speech as well as social media.[26][21][27][28][29][30][31][32]

Recurring themes in the work of Space Caviar include the impact of media and technology on social relations, and the design of domesticity. As curator of Biennale Interieur, Space Caviar presented a series of works and exhibitions including The Theatre of Everyday Life and the film Fortress of Solitude, which were together poised to ask challenging questions on the past, present and future of the home under the umbrella title SQM: The Home Does Not Exist.[7]
