Design Konstantin Grcic, 2006
Molded wood, veneer, rubber grip
As far as Konstantin Grcic was concerned, the thought of designing the 1001st tame chair with four legs was just too boring. Instead he created a new type of chair, a highly sculptural and intelligent combination of two wooden shells. ?'Venus' is free of ballast in every respect: it is simple, bright wood, with smooth, clear contours and is astonishingly lightweight. An exciting new chapter in the long history of sitting - and one of the most aesthetic options for giving that special touch to a conference room or dining room.
Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.
Venus is molded wood with real wood veneer available in natural oak or black varnished. Grip and base profile in rubber.
