Brut Adjustable Table
The Brut adjustable table strikes a visual balance between causal and contemporary, light and heavy. The table, designed by Konstantin Grcic in 2017, references cast iron’s conventional industrial uses with its trestle base and adjustable height — seamlessly converting from a dining table to a standing desk. The two cast iron trestles, while robust, support a slim rectangular tabletop achieving a pleasant visual symmetry between unlike materials.
The trestles in cast iron are painted in polyester powder and fit with tops in veneered oak or painted electro-galvanized sheet steel.

“Designing a lamp is no longer limited to working around a given bulb. Today, it means designing the actual bulb or light source. This challenged me to think of Parentesi, a lamp that celebrated the traditional bulb in the most effective and beautiful way. Would it be possible to rethink the Parentesi lamp once more and pass the Manzù-Castiglioni torch on to the future? – Konstantin Grcic
Born in 1965 in Munich, Konstantin Grcic developed his particular aesthetic and became a well-known industrial designer. In 1991, he founded Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design in his hometown. His design work was often informed by his foundation in traditional cabinetmaking and included furniture, lighting, and accessories, often with the incorporation of unusual or innovative materials. Grcic uses injection molded plastic and aluminum die casting for the overall design of furniture pieces rather than regulating these materials to simple structural components. He has collections featured both at MoMA in New York City and the Deutsches Museum in Munich. He has collaborated with Authentics, Flos, Krups, Magis, Moroso, Muji, Plank, and Vitra. Notable pieces by Grcic include Chair_One and the Mayday lamp.
