Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic 1965年出生于慕尼黑,随后在英国帕纳姆学院作为一个木工学徒,并后期在伦敦皇家艺术学院设计设计,很快他开始在Jasper Morisson 工作室做hg0088首页, 1991年Grcic在慕尼黑成立了他自己的工作室“Konstantin Grcic工业设计”,在这里他为一些知名的品牌设计家具、物品、灯具,例如Authentics,Driade, Flos, Vitra 以及 Magis。他极简的设计把材料缩减到极少,同时让人感觉有一定的固执。相比临时的时尚,他更喜欢极简主义。 

由于人们对功能的需求非常高,这使得Grcic的设计理念非常成功,Grcic对于一些框框架架的东西也有他自己富有创意和幽默的看法,他许多的作品都获得了让人梦寐以求的奖项,2001年他为Flos设计的多功能灯“Mayday”获得了意大利Compasso d’Oro奖,同时被纽约现代艺术博物馆永久收藏。


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.
