Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich in 1965. Following his training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England, he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London. Just a short time later, he started working as a designer in Jasper Morisson’s studio. In 1991, Grcic established his own office in 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 is reduced to the essentials and which also has the effect of seeming a little headstrong at the same time. In contrast to the temporary fad that is minimalism, Grcic’s concepts are successful thanks to a level of functionality that is defined by people’s needs and are appealing with their ingenious and humorous view of formality and severity. Many of his works have been awarded coveted prizes. In 2001, his multipurpose light ‘Mayday’, which he designed for Flos, won the Compasso d’Oro and was also incorporated into the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
