konstantin grcic to exhibit at milan style 7 days
As component of Milan Structure 7 days, Giustini/Stagetti offers DAYBED and WALL: two special, constrained-version home furniture pieces by Konstantin Grcic. The two pieces will be offered with an exhibition at NFQ entitled ‘Ceci n’est pas un mur,’ which ‘ironically tends to make reference to Magritte’s well-known portray of a pipe which is recognized to be an impression of a pipe and not the object itself.’ With this reference to Magritte, the designer provokes the viewers to issue their perception of the objects that encompass them.
Each DAYBED and WALL are created to reinterpret the classical structure of home furniture on the scale of a ‘micro-architecture.’ In carrying out so, the parts will exist to furnish a house and make room in convert. The parts for Giustini/Stagetti were being understood in collaboration with Roberto Primiceri, a cupboard maker who, amongst others, worked intently with the late Umberto Riva.

Created by Konstantin Grcic (see below), Giustini/Stagetti (see below) provides the DAYBED as a self-contained cell for looking through, studying and contemplation. The piece indicates a modern interpretation of the renaissance-era studiolo, a compact place focused to introspective contemplation.
The mattress is nestled inside a wooden box with a wall at its head that is opened up by a smaller window with a ledge projecting outwards. The longitudinal wall which stretches the duration of the mattress integrates a picket drawer and a shelf. This shelf then expands into a tiny desk region, which cantilevers to the outside of the box and invites buyers to pull up a chair. The key construction of the DAYBED is crafted of noticed-cut oak veneer, when the mattress is wrapped in a neutral wool bouclé, creating a tranquil warmth.

Meanwhile, Konstantin Grcic’s WALL normally takes condition as a large, no cost-standing composition, an assemblage of a few modules of distinctive lengths — Wall A measuring just one meter, Wall B two meters, and Wall C a few meters. Each individual module is developed to be reconfigured very easily with a multitude of organizations. The crew notes that WALL recollects a big-scale product of a substantial-rise making, establishing throughout various levels. The work integrates architectural features suggesting a staircase, a supply shaft, a window.
The designer notes that when WALL could simply purpose as a bookshelf, it can be utilised in quite a few ways provided its measurement and official range, depending on the user’s requirements or creativity. WALL is made in wood it is hand-painted in grey these kinds of that the specific brush strokes are obvious. Its colour emphasizes the piece’s architectural character and solidity.
