DRIVEN BY GERMAN DESIGN, DOHA, QATAR

As a highlight of the Qatar Germany 2017 Year of Culture, a mutual exchange of arts, culture, science and sport between the two countries, Qatar Museum opened the “Driven by German Design” show, which celebrates the evolution and achievements of German Design. The exhibition, running at Qatar Museums Gallery ALRIWAQ in Doha from 3 October 2017 – 14 January 2018, brings together for the first time different design disciplines including architecture, graphic design, product design, automotive design, fashion and furniture design. It offers visitors a range of insights into both the artistic value of developments in design and their cultural significance by showcasing design concepts and works created in Germany or developed by German designers since 1945. The show embodies the ambitious vision of its curator Martin Roth.

A series of prototypes of the MYTO cantilever chair, designed by Konstantin Grcic makes part of the exhibition.

MIURA folding table and Transport Trolley

The MIURA table designed by Konstantin Grcic originally was created to accompany the MIURA stool. Soon it’s strong personality, along with a remarkable versatility has given the product its own commercial autonomy.

The practical folding table range has been regularly expanded and updated over the years. The MIURA table is delivered flat-packed and the removable legs simply slot around the central connecting point – easy to assemble at destination.

To enhance the practicality of the MIURA folding tables in contract environments, Plank has developed a dedicated trolley for moving multiple units. The tables stack horizontally on the trolley’s angular base, helping to save time and space when setting up or clearing up after an event. Several trolleys can be nested together to further reduce storage space.
