MAYDAY Outdoor

design Konstantin Grcic, 2000

Here is finally the outdoor version of the famous Konstantin Grcic's Mayday lamp.

Its long 5 meter cable wraps easily around the hook handle and allows the lamp to be transported and hung anywhere. The switch is placed on the handle. The conical diffuser is injection molded from durable polypropylene produced from industrial process waste. Switch on the handle. The light source is protected from humidity by a transparent hermetic capsule made of polymethyl methacrylate sealed with an elastomer gasket which allows an IP 65 protection rating to be achieved. As no glue is used in the assembly process, Mayday is easy to disassemble so each part can be recycled.

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.
