The German designer Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965) studied in Royal College of Art in London. In 1991 he founded his own company, KGID. Over the years, Grcic has had many well-known clients such as Magis, Vitra and Iittala. The cooperation with Magis lead to one of the most interesting and inventive chairs of our time, the Chair One. Chair One became a design icon and a part of the permanent collections in MoMA in New York and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
