Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich in 1965. Following his training as acabinet maker at Parnham College in England, he studied design at the RoyalCollege of Art in London. Just a short time later, he started working as adesigner in Jasper Morisson’s studio. In 1991, Grcic established his own officein Munich, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design, where he creates furniture,objects and lamps for renowned manufacturers such as Authentics, Driade, Flos,Vitra and Magis. The products are appealing thanks to a simple design which isreduced to the essentials and which also has the effect of seeming a littleheadstrong at the same time. In contrast to the temporary fad that isminimalism, Grcic’s concepts are successful thanks to a level of functionalitythat is defined by people’s needs and are appealing with their ingenious andhumorous view of formality and severity. Many of his works have been awardedcoveted prizes. In 2001, his multipurpose light ‘Mayday’, which he designed forFlos, won the Compasso d’Oro and was also incorporated into the permanentcollection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
