or Call to Order

The resolute silhou­ette of chair_​ONE has proven incred­i­bly tangi­ble and quickly yielded a family of designs, includ­ing Chair One Public Seating Systems One and Two: benches made from three chairs linked under­neath by a central cross­bar. Both share the iconic aluminum die-cast seat and are suit­able for indoor and outdoor use but differ in base. System One features a concrete cone base, while System Two has a base in the same die-cast aluminum painted in poly­ester powder for a more unified aesthetic. The chair system is made of sepa­rate elements, includ­ing a small table in HPL, so it’s easy to create any combi­na­tion of three, four, or five seats.

“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.
