(jiří macek) Konstantin Grcic did not allow himself to rest this year and went on developing the eternal theme of the chair. His latest piece, designed for the Spanish brand of bd Barcelona, plays with the seat on a dining chair while tilting it considerably. Thus, when one looks at it from the other side, one can see in it a symbol of liberation of cinema and theatre seats. Thanks to Grcic, the tip-up seats can go wherever they want.
However, the desire to roam was definitely not behind the design of the B chair. The chair found inspiration in the proverbial stackability. Instead of layering the chairs one onto another, one simply stacks them into a line in which they quietly wait for dinner guests. Of course, the tip-up seat is not Grcic’s invention, yet represents a work of art in the combination with Grcic’s distinct and simple style. Even though it was created for the B table, designed by Grcic for bd last year, it will please anywhere.
