Breakfast with Konstantin Grcic

The Munich born designer Grcic talks about the opportunity to work with a revolutionary new ceramic material SaphirKeramik allowing wafer thin walls and tight-edge radii and what it means to explore a new material in such a traditional domain. He will take you through the creative process behind his new designs forLaufen Bathrooms and answer your questions. The installation presenting the first prototypes of Konstantin Grcic’s work for Laufen will be shown for the first time after its official release on Salone del Mobile 2014.

Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID) was founded in 1991. The office specialises in various fields of design ranging from furniture and industrial products to exhibition design and architecture related work. KGID is working for some of the leading names of the design industry. Many of their products have received international design awards and form part of the permanent collections of the world´s most prestigious museums.

Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humour.  Each of his products is characterised by a careful research into the history of design and architecture and his passion for technology and materials. Known for pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.
