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.

Konstantin Grcic. New Normals at Haus am Waldsee, Berlin

...With the exhibition New Normals at Haus am Waldsee, Berlin, Konstantin Grcic presents some exceedingly odd things and in doing so invites us all to reflect on the fact that that which is not yet, will one day be... New normal is, yes, very much a term associated with the Covid pandemic; however, as Konstantin Grcic is keen to underscore, New Normals is not a Covid pandemic exhibition, is an exhibition whose development began in the pandemic but at a time when all assumed that by January 2022 the pandemic would be behind us, would be an ex-normal, and is thus an exhibition which has its origins less in the new normal of the face mask or the later flow test as in more general objects and rituals which initially appeared strange, alien, but quickly established themselves as thoroughly normal, Grcic naming examples such as urban surveillance cameras or smartphones...
