Konstantin Grcic

German artist and designer, he has an analytical and rational approach that focuses on simplicity.

After studying designed at the Royal College of Art in London, Konstantin Grcic opened his own studio in Munich in 1991, where he developed furniture, products and lighting for some the world’s leading design companies (Authentics, BD Ediciones, ClassiCon, Flos, Flötotto, Magis, Maharam, Muji, Nespresso, Plank, Serafino Zani and Vitra).

Many of his products received international design awards, such as the prestigious Compasso d’Oro for his Mayday lamp (Flos) in 2001 and the Muto chair (Plank) in 2011, furthermore they are part of the permanent collections of the most important design museums (MoMA – New York, Centre Georges Pompidou – Paris).

“Simplicity is perhaps my motivation in a process of understanding something, my approach is analytical, I’m quite rational and I can’t change it. Simplicity is a way of getting to the bone of something, to the root.”

The Royal Society for the Arts appointed Konstantin Grcic Royal Designer for Industry in 2009, while Design Miami awarded him Designer of the Year in 2010. A comprehensive monograph of his work was published by Phaidon Press, London (2005).
