MagisChair-One (2004), Konstantin Grcic
Born in 1965 and educated at the Royal College of Art in London, Konstantin Grcic is a contemporary industrial designer who has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field.
Designed in 2004 for Magis, the iconic Magis Chair-One is one of the most inventive chairs ever created. The shell is a structure of flat geometric shapes that join up around the edges like a soccer ball. It is placed on a cement base, which is painted transparent to emphasize its pleasingly rough texture. Already, the Chair-One is considered a design classic and now resides in the permanent collections of many prestigious museums including MoMA in New York and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
