Friday Finds!

Konstantin Grcic is a designer we keep being drawn back to… We’ve blogged about him several times. These chairs are part of the  Traffic seating Collection for Italian design brand  Magis. They are inspired by iconic forms and obtain beautiful harmony between industrial and  refined artistic sensibilities.

Here Grcic revisits the famous chaise longue B306 by Le Corbusier,  Jeanneret and Perriand.  “The correlation between the three-dimensional line drawing of the metal rod and the geometric lines of the cushions marks a significant shift from the common connotation of wire furniture” says Grcic.

It is the result of the meeting of the artists Ora Ito and Daniel Buren and consists of 7 monumental works on the roof terrace  which play with dimensions, perspective, light and the environment. Buren’s black and white columns (1985-86) in Palais Royale in Paris are spectacular and a familiar and much-loved sight to Parisians.
