This Side Up – Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design / Museum of Design Zurich / Interview, part 3/3

This Side Up - Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design / Museum of Design Zurich / Interview, part 3/3
“Along with his studio Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID) that was set up in 1991 he has made a name for himself through experiments with materials and a constructive individuality. KGID products are characterised by their everyday usefulness and formal restraint as well as by humour and perspicacity. These are the kind of products that at times can even amaze and irritate. In addition to analysing for what and whom the designs are intended, challenging the industrial process is always a major concern. This leads to the creation of objects such as Chair_One or the portable light Mayday.” (PR Museum of Design, Zurich). Interview with Konstantin Grcic, part 3/3. January 22, 2007.
