Young German designer Konstantin Grcic, winner of the Compasso d'Oro (Milan, 2001) among other awards, is an established figure in the international scene. From his initial training as a cabinet-maker, Grcic retains the hands-on approach and sensitivity to materials of a craftsman. His foray into contemporary design at the Royal College of Art in London, added a new dimension to his fascination with making things. As a result, every one of his products is informed by his research into the history of design and architecture, and a passion for technology. The book presents the work of KGID, show-casing a portfolio and offering a rare insight into the design process through the various stages of product's development. Conceived by Florian Bohm and Konstantin Grcic and illustrated with sketches, computer renderings and photographs, this is the first publication on one of the most interesting and prolific designers working today.
