Grcic now at VITRA, in 2015 at Z33
Last week the exhibition Panorama by Konstantin Grcic opened at VITRA Designmuseum in Wheil-am-Rhein (Germany). It was developed over three years of close collaboration between Grcic, the Vitra Design Museum and Z33.
Konstantin Grcic is one of the most influential designers of our time. Serious and functional, unwieldy and occasionally disconcerting, his works combine an industrial aesthetic with experimental, artistic elements. Specifically for this exhibition, Grcic has developed several large-scale installations, rendering his personal visions for life in the future: a home interior, a design studio and an urban environment. The result is a striking presentation of narrative and visual intensity, situated on the cusp between present and future, reality and fiction.
In 2015 Panorama is shown at Z33. Further exhibition venues will be announced in due course.
