KONSTANTIN GRCIC, Cast_1: Work Lamps

032c workshop is pleased to present the first part of KONSTANTIN GRCIC’s “Cast_1 series,” and the release of his 032c special-edition Diana side tables. “Cast_1” is a never-ending program bringing together new, forgotten, anonymous, commissioned, or reissued industrial objects and products. For the opening investigation in the series, Grcic uncovers the peculiar architecture of the work lamp with a selection of eight historical and contemporary designs that illustrate the varied forms of a product with a singular function.

The lamps include: Fortebraccio by LucePlan (1998), BL_2 by Bestlite (1930), L-1 8155 by Luxo (1937), Pino T by Baltensweiler (1972), Hebi by Valenti Luce (1970), Cloe by Lumina (1975), Bill by Tobias Grau (2004), and Loft by Jieldé (1950).

The supporting Diana side tables, designed by Grcic and produced by ClassiCon in a special edition for 032c, are made of sheet metal and powder coated with vibrant, metallic car-paint colors.

Konstantin Grcic, born 1965, is an industrial designer based in Munich. His work ranges from furniture to kitchenware and is produced by companies such as ClassiCon, Vitra, Krups, and Magis. Grcic products have been exhibited at countless design fairs and museums, including Haus der Kunst, Munich, and the MoMA, New York.

  • Dev Hynes Collaborates with OAMC and Adidas on a Capsule Collection

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
