German Design Award 2016

REMO Chair, design Konstantin GrcicGerman Design Award Winner 2016, Category Excellent Product Design – Furniture.

Statement of the Jury: “Remo is a simple, down-to-earth plywood chair and a beautiful example for how it can look when handcrafted tradition is united with the latest production technologies. A characteristic feature of the stackable chair is the tshaped back that is positively connected with the saddlelike arched seat through a special procedure. This symbolic two part construction leads to an extremely light but strong seat that offers exceptional comfort.”


New MIURA table base 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’s original welded steel base has now been redesigned and replaced with an all-new aluminum version. 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.

MIURA table linking device

The minimal and elegant square-topped MIURA table by Konstantin Grcic provides a sophisticated solution for spaces requiring a flexible furniture system that can be rearranged easily. Chairs or stools can be positioned around single tables or placed along the edges of tables connected in rows of any length for more formal events.

The MIURA table features a tripod base that helps the top to remain steady, even on irregular floors. This makes it suitable for use indoors or outdoors on a variety of different surfaces. From dinner on the terrace at home to important meetings at the office, the possibility to use single or multiple tables means parties of any size can be accommodated.

Plank recently provided MIURA tables for the press room of the President of the provincial government of South Tyrol, where the company is based. The tables are regularly arranged in rows and Plank was able to source a discreet mechanism that fixes the table tops together. The device also ensures the tops are level and at an even height, resulting in a single seamless surface.

The MIURA table’s other practical qualities include its folding top, which can be flipped up to make storage easier. Its powder-coated metal base supports a surface made from metal, MDF or HPL, which is available in a range of shapes and sizes, but for scenarios where adaptability is vital, the square-topped version offers an optimal solution.

MONZA armchair attachment device

The MONZA armchair is a popular choice for seminar and conference rooms because of its elegant ergonomic design and the possibility to stack the chairs when not in use. Especially for this scenario, its designer Konstantin Grcic together with Plank also developed a simple product for connecting the chairs in rows while simultaneously providing convenient storage.

The connector slots into the gap between the seats and grips the cylindrical legs to ensure even spacing between the chairs without requiring any permanent fixings. Its recessed central section provides space for pens, notepads or other personal items and enables the trays to be stacked to make them easier to store.

The linking device is made from thermoformed ABS plastic. It is available in black as a standard optional accessory to accompany the chairs.

For a special one-off project, Plank adapted the connectors so seats could be fixed in a circular formation, demonstrating the company’s dedication to fulfilling customers’ specific requirements.

The product offers a low-tech and visually unobtrusive solution to a common problem in the contract sector, which enhances the practicality and versatility of the MONZA armchair.
