Ettore Ornament / door-stopMAGIS: Design Konstantin Grcic
Ornament / door-stop.
It says a lot about Perazza, founder and head of Magis, that he has chosen the mule as the emblem of his company. And, obviously, it says a lot about the company, its spirit and character being hard working, tireless. While we were working on the
BRUT collection of cast-iron furniture, Perazza asked me if I could draw a mule to be made cast in iron for the company ́s 40th anniversary. At rst I was surprised, thinking that I have probably not drawn an animal since my childhood. I did it, and it was fun.
ETTORE turned out a real mule, its legs rmly on the ground, determined and strong. But it is also a beautiful thing, loveable and playful. Just like Magis. Material: cast-iron painted in polyester powder.

Konstantin Grcic was born in 1965, and trained as a cabinet maker at The John Makepeace School (Dorset, England) before studying Design at the Royal College of Art in London.
Since setting up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID), in Munich in 1991, he has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field.

Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining strict forms with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products expresses a careful research into the history of design and architecture, and his passion for technology and materials. Known for his pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist, but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.
Many of his products have received international design awards, such as the prestigious Compasso d`Oro for his MAYDAY lamp (Flos) in 2001 and his MYTO chair (Plank) in 2011. Works by Konstantin Grcic are part of the permanent collections of the world´s most important design museums (including MoMA/New York and Centre Georges Pompidou/Paris).
