“Something has to happen between objects,”, Konstantin Grcic once said in an interview. It seems he set this demand as his guiding principle for Chair One while he designed it in the year 2003 for Magis
because the skeleton-like and sculptural chair caused a furore not only in the specialist world. However, Chair One with its cement base is not merely an avant-garde piece of furniture. The chair is an interplay of material, shape and industrial manufacturing. It can be used both inside and outside, since it is rust-proof and fire-retardant.
Thanks to the heavy concrete base, the chair also stands securely in any kind of weather. Grcic used aluminium die casting for the complete seat of Chair One for the first time which has also been treated with fluorinated titan and polyester lacquer on the surface. The complete base consists of colourless impregnated concrete.
