Industrial Design and Innovation

Designer Profile: Konstantin Grcic

Raised in Munich, industrial designer Konstantin Grcic has a broad portfolio but is best known for his sometimes radical chair designs. In a recent interview with Dwell Grcic discussed his penchant for furniture design and some of what drives his work.“I like the scale of furniture, the relevance, the place it has in everyday life… Furniture reflects how we live.”

Grcic’s designs recognise the influence that context has over the needs of a specific chair. “For example, the idea most people have of ‘comfort’ is rather simple. Comfort is equalled with sitting in a deep sofa. But when you think of it, in some situations a soft sofa is not comfortable at all.”
