Konstantin Grcic is considered one of the most innovative and profound product designers worldwide. His career began with a chair and a lamp, both of which are on display at the MOMA in New York.
»Design is Work« accompanies the designer for the duration of a year in the various segments of his working world. Here, with the aid of design models, we can observe the developmental process behind one of his most prominent pieces, »Chair_One«– from the initial sketches to the finished product.
In the film, these working steps are lucidly illustrated by Grcic’s current project: a furniture series made of cast iron, conceived and developed with the long-established Italian design company »Magis«. It becomes apparent that design involves a tremendous amount of work – but also considerably more.
