Konstantin Grcic – Panorama, Vitra Design Museum
Panorama is the title of the exhibition dedicated by the Vitra Design Museum to Konstantin Grcic and his works, which will be opened on March, 21st (until September, 14th 2014).
Magis is protagonist and sponsor of this solo exhibition on Grcic, who has become a star of the international design thanks to a series of products, which are already recognized as design classics, such as the Chair_One designed for Magis in 2002.
This exhibition focuses on three large-scale installations developped by the designer especially for this show and presenting his personal visions for life in the future: a home interior, a design studio and an urban landscape. A fourth area of the exhibition provides insights into Grcic’s working methods with a selection of objects, prototypes, drawings and works by other designers who inspired him in his career.
This makes Panorama an exhibition between present and future, reality and fiction: a great design narration with an extraordinary visual power.
All the products designed by Konstantin Grcic during his years-long collaboration with Magis find a wide collocation in this exhibition: from Family_One to 360° Family, from Venice to the collection The Wild Bunch, up to the most recent products, that is the Traffic collection and the chair Tuffy, which will be launched at the next Salone del Mobile.
