Konstantin Grcic


Konstantin Grcic (*1965 Munich/Germany) initially completed a apprentiship as furniture carpenter before going on to study Industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London. Following his graduation he spent 12 months working with Jasper Morrison before establishing his own bureau Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID) in 1991. His work is typified for all by it's simplicity and clarity of form. By Konstantin Grcic's own admission one of the simplest pieces he has designed is his shelving system ES for Moormann. Grcic's most famous design however is his lamp "Mayday" for which he has collected numerous awards and which belongs to the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
