The biggest-ever solo exhibition about Konstantin Grcic, one of the most influential designers of our time.
An exhibition at the breaking point between present and future, reality and fiction. Grcic has created several large-scale installations depicting his personal visions of life in the future: a home interior, a design studio and an urban environment. Featured here are many final versions of objects he designed, as well as prototypes, sketches and background information. In his works, Konstantin Grcic combines an industrial ethic with experimental and artistic elements.
We also have the chance to study some of his sources of inspiration – from an old teapot and an early Apple computer to works by Marcel Duchamp, Gerrit Rietveld and Enzo Mari. Many of Grcic’s works, such as Chair One (2004) or the Mayday lamp (1999), are now considered to be modern design classics.
