The first catalogue raisonne on one of the leading designers of our time, with many of his creations, such as "Chair_One" (2004) or the "Mayday lamp" (1999) already recognized as design classics. A fascinating read for those interested in the present and future of design.

Reviews

German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic has always straddled the lines between design and contemporary art, technology and craft, so it's fitting that Panorama, his solo show at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein earlier this year included immersive multimedia installations. The companion book is equally engaging, defying the usual conventions of a retrospective. Fans of his work, from commissions for Herman Miller and Flos to smaller studio pieces, will marvel at the detailed insight into oeuvre provided by photos of his archive of things. The notion of time is evident throughout the book, which connects his work to the past, present and future via a pictorial catalogue raisonne reaching back to the mid-1980s - a theme furthered by images of such futuristic concepts as an imagined studio and lab. With poetic passages from Grcic and essays by leading voices, including MoMA curator Paola Antonelli and architectural historian Mario Carpo, the book asserts Grcic as the true thinking man's designer.--Catherine Sweeney "Azure"
