Konstantin Grcic – Panorama at the Vitra Design Museum

Konstantin Grcic is one of the most influential designers of our time. Serious and functional, unwieldy and occasionally disconcerting, his works combine an industrial aesthetic with experimental, artistic elements. Many of Grcic’s creations such as “Chair_One” (2004) or the “Mayday” lamp (1999) are widely acclaimed as design classics. With “Konstantin Grcic – Panorama”, the Vitra Design Museum is now presenting the largest solo exhibition on Grcic and his work to date. “Panorama” starts on March 22nd at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein in Svizzerland until the 14th of September 2014 and is accompanied by a comprehensive events programme consisting of talks, discussions, workshops with renowned designer, artists and scientists. Featured guests include Hans Ulrich Obrist, Richard Sennett, Elizabeth Diller, Matthias Horx, Stefan Diez, Phillipe Rahm, Snohetta, Raumlabor and many others.
