Vitra Design Museum

Konstantin Grcic is one of the leading designers of the present day. Some of Grcic’s designs – such as »Chair_One« (2004) or the »Mayday« lamp (1999) – have already attained the status of design classics. With »Konstantin Grcic – Panorama«, the Vitra Design Museum shows his largest solo exhibition to date. It provides a comprehensive overview of Grcic’s oeuvre and is at the same time a new design project in its own right. Especially for this show, Grcic is developing spatial installations that set in scene his personal visions for life in the world of tomorrow – both pensively radical and powerfully profound. More

An exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum and Z33, Hasselt.

Revisiting the Future

In 1970, the Danish designer Verner Panton was commissioned by Bayer AG to create the interior landscape »Visiona 2«, one of the most radical visions of the future in twentieth-century design. Instead of separate rooms with classical furnishings, Panton developed a domestic environment composed of colourful, modular upholstery elements, reflecting the informal, relaxed attitudes
and lifestyles of the time. The centrepiece of »Visiona 2« was a spectacular, cave-like interior landscape marked by vibrant colours and organic forms. The exhibition in the Vitra Design Museum Gallery presents a faithfully reproduced, walk-in reconstruction of the installation, complemented by a behind-the-scenes look at Panton’s »Visiona 2« project.
