But it is comfortable, and perched on the cantilevered seat, you feel completely secure. Designer Konstantin Grcic envisioned this seat as more void than solid, using the least material for the most “Wow!” And he made it clear complement to his Chair_One and Table_One designs.


Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic was born in 1965, and trained as a cabinet maker at The John Makepeace School (Dorset, England) before studying Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Since setting up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID), in Munich in 1991, he has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. His more renowned clients include Authentics, BD Ediciones, ClassiCon, Flos, Magis, Mattiazzi, Muji, Nespresso, Plank, Serafino Zani, Thomas-Rosenthal and Vitra. He has created a number of limited-edition pieces for Galerie Kreo in Paris since 2004. Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining strict forms with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products expresses a careful research into the history of design and architecture, and his passion for technology and materials. Known for his pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist, but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity. Many of his products have received international design awards, such as the prestigious Compasso d`Oro for his MAYDAY lamp (Flos) in 2001 and his MYTO chair (Plank) in 2011. Works by Konstantin Grcic are part of the permanent collections of the world´s most important design museums (including MoMA/New York and Centre Georges Pompidou/Paris).


Established in 1976, Magis combines design, technological innovation and a 100% Made in Italy ethos to create high quality products.
