Panorama exhibition by Konstantin Grcic, Hong Kong

December 19th, 2016 by retail design blog

Born in Munich to Serbian parents, Konstantin Grcic [1965] graduated from London’s prestigious Royal College of Art, and embarked on a career path that would eventually make him one of the planet’s most influential industrial designers, creating furniture, products and lighting for leading design companies. Following much publicized European stopovers at the Vitra Design Museum and Z33 in Hasselt, the largest ever showcase of Grcic’s designs to date makes its asian debut at the gallery space of the Hong Kong Design Institute. Aptly entitled Konstantin Grcic – Panorama, it explores the designer’s vision and provides an intriguing insight into his creative practice. The exhibition is divided into four sections that render Grcic’s personal vision for life in the future: a home interior [life space], a design studio [work space], an urban environment [public space), and finally, the object space.

The first three sections of the exhibition demonstrate how the designer situates his work in the present day, while also shedding light on questions that occupy him, and revealing how he envisions the future of design. In the final space, visitors see objects, prototypes and drawings, supplemented by pieces from other designers, everyday items, and also a collection of found objects that not only struck a sensitive chord with Grcic, but also lay bare the connection between his individual projects and the development of each new product. Adding to the visual splendour is jungle_one, an installation designed by Grcic and supported by main exhibition partner Magis [on through apr 2].
