Konstantin Grcic: Panorama / Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein

Konstantin Grcic is one of the most successful furniture designers. His “Chair_One” (2004) is a design classic, and Grcic’s oeuvre has already been the topic of several solo exhibitions. Panorama, the current exhibition at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein takes a fresh look at his oeuvre by presenting his works in four different scenic installations: the Live Space, the Work Space, the Public Space, and the Object Space. The settings demonstrate how Konstantin Grcic situates his work in the present day, while also revealing how he envisions the future of design. In this video we have a look at the exhibition and speak with the curator of the show, Mateo Kries (Director, Vitra Design Museum), and Konstantin Grcic.

Konstantin Grcic: “There’s now one future, there’s no master plan or utopia vision and certainly not made by architects or designers. The future is many answers to many problems, and most likely very specific answers to specific problems that become reference to other specific problems and so on.”

Konstantin Grcic: Panorama is an exhibition organized by the Vitra Design Museum and Z33 – House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium.
