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.

    Grcic is one of my favorite industrial designers. I love his work and this installation is typical of his thoughtful style. I was lucky enough to meet Konstantin a couple of years ago. He’s a soft spoken man with a complete (obviously) passion for design and innovation.

    Jennifer, thank you very much for commenting on the David report blog. As you are saying, Konstantin is indeed a great designer with a very focused mind. I have recently been involved in a nice product development project with Konstantin which I will write about here during the spring (after it has been launched, still a secret…).
