Konstantin Grcic

Born in Munich in 1965, Konstantin Grcic trained as a cabinetmaker before studying design at the Royal College of Art in London. There he meets Jasper Morrison and Vico Magistretti who will influence his work throughout his career. After graduating, he joined Jasper Morrison's studio and in 1991 founded his own studio in Munich: Konstantin Grcic, Industrial Design (KGID). He works there for prestigious publishers (IIttala, Magis, Moroso, Flos ...) as well as for industrialists (Krups, Whirlpool).

Grcic favors a functionalist approach to design: he calls his style "current, feasible and concrete". His creations have a radical, raw side. Some of Grcic's creations are part of the collections of the MoM and the Museum of Decorative Arts. He has also been awarded a Compasso d'oro for the Mayday Lamp and the Myto chair.
