Workshop discussion on the design process of chair_ONE
With Konstantin Grcic, designer, Konstantin Grcic Design, Berlin
and Tim Bechthold, Head of Conservation, Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum
Moderation: Hubert Filser, science journalist and physicist
In August 2013 Konstantin Grcic donated to Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum twentyseven threedimensional models, which – all of them designed between 1999 and 2003 – eventually led to the serial production of the iconic chair_ONE.
A workshop discussion with Konstantin Grcic was appointed and soon took place – moderated by Hubert Filser. Its aim was to clarify the chronological sequence of the models and to obtain futher background information on the making-of and the used materials.
The aquired information and knowledge of the design process served both as basis for the required conservation measurements as well as for the preparation of the exhibition The Good, The Bad, The Ugly in Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
The workshop discussion is a bonus of the documentary Konstantin Grcic. Design is Work (Germany, 2017) by Gereon Wetzel.
