Konstantin Grcic: Panorama
Time Out says
Renowned German designer Konstantin Grcic presents a comprehensive exhibition of his products, elevating home and office spaces into modernist vision.
In collaboration with Germany’s Vitra Design Museum and Belgium’s Z33 Hasselt, this exhibition at Hong Kong Design Institute marks the largest show in Asia for German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic. Pushing the boundaries of conventional blueprints and injecting his avant-garde style across his work, the renowned designer is presenting a comprehensive exhibition depicting how he envisions the future through elevating everyday objects into new products.
The exhibition is split into four sections: home interior (Life Space), a design studio (Work Space), an urban environment (Public Space) and the Object Space. The life, work and public space areas delve into how Grcic's repertoire of work connects with modern day home and society and how to envision the future of design, while the object space section reveals to visitors his prototypes and drawings, as well as examining sources of inspiration and the evolution of each new product.
From geometrically shaped lounge chairs to architectural yet functional desks, Grcic’s products and installations reflect his forward-thinking aesthetics and are gorgeously sleek. Adding to the exhibition are two installations, Jungle One, which is displayed at Design Boulevard at Hong Kong Design Institute, and eight examples of Chair One, for visitors to lounge and experience Grcic’s design first hand.
