German designer Konstantin Grcic has been the “guest of honour” at the Stockholm Furniture fair which ends today. Konstantin Grcic presented a nice exhibition with the theme of an artificial garden at the entrance of the show including some of his most successful products like Chair-one for Magis, the Mayday lamp for Flos and the Miura barstool for Plank. Brackens were dibbled in his containers for Authentics and gave an overall green feeling to the exhibition. According to Konstantin Grcic the idea was to offer visitors a moment of tranquillity in a warm and satisfying setting.
“The sensation of living plants in this installation is a new element for me to work with.The plants will create a living oasis in the middle of the busy crowd,” explains Konstantin Grcic.
In previous the lounge in Stockholm International Fairs’ entrance hall has been created by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec and the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa. A nice list of the most influential designers of the present.
