Konstantin Grcic: Panorama

Published by Vitra Design Museum
Edited by Mateo Kries. Text by Paola Antonelli, Jan Boelen, Mario Carpo, Mateo Kries, Janna Lipsky, Jonathan Olivares, Louise Schouwenberg, Richard Sennett, Peter Sloterdijk.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Konstantin Grcic: Panorama</I>.Konstantin Grcic (born 1965) is one of the leading designers of our time. Many of his creations, such as Chair_One (2004) or the Mayday lamp (1999), are already recognized as design classics. Konstantin Grcic: Panorama is being published in conjunction with the largest solo exhibition on Grcic to date. It constitutes the first catalogue raisonné of the designer’s work and documents more than 350 pieces of furniture, products and exhibitions with informative details, images and comprehensive descriptions. This overview is accompanied by numerous illustrated essays from renowned authors, including Peter Sloterdijk, Richard Sennett, Paola Antonelli, Jonathan Olivares, Mario Carpo, Louise Schouwenberg, Jan Boelen, Janna Lipsky and Mateo Kries. While some essays investigate Grcic’s oeuvre and its context, others address broader issues that shape Grcic’s work, such as new production technologies, the evolution of the home or the development of public space. The book is further augmented by a series of images depicting visionary spatial designs by Grcic produced especially for the exhibition, demonstrating his conceptions of life in the future. All these facets combine to make the book a unique panorama of a designer whose contemporary influence is widely felt, as well as a fascinating read for all those with an interest in the future of design.

Konstantin Grcic: Panorama

Konstantin Grcic: PanoramaIn Panorama, the catalog to Vitra Design Museum's compelling current exhibition, influential German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic writes, "Over the years, an 'archive of things' has accumulated in my studio. Scattered among my own design projects are other objects, references, materials, personal finds, artworks. They are arranged in a row, like a game of dominoes. Their order is based on a simple logic: one object tells a story that refers to the next object, which in turn is linked to the story of the following one, and so forth. There is no chronology, just a continuous sequence of freely associated narratives. The relationships are subjective and could also work in a different order. For me, this principle reflects a familiar process: inspiration comes from the dynamic interaction of things. The vitrine is a cosmos of knowledge and ideas. Taken as a whole, it represents a part of my biography." Describing the works in this image Grcic writes, "We discovered that there are thousands of stacking chairs on the market, but almost no stackable bar stools. And the stacking feature is not only relevant for the user, it is also practical and economical with regard to production, warehousing and transport. From a technical standpoint, the orange-and-black stool would be rejected as a by-product that occurs when colors are changed during a production run. The photo of construction workers with the MIURA stool was published in a small volume of images shot by Florian Böhm in New York City in the summer of 2006. Portable construction lamps served as models for MAYDAY (Flos, 1999). Incidentally, construction sites with the craziest, most imaginative and beautiful lighting objects are found in Japan." continue to blog
