ClassiCon was founded in 1990 by Stephan Fischer von Poturzyn, founder of the Design Center Munich and manager of the Vereinigte Werkstätten AG. Since the beginning was the goal to present and advocade besides the mainstream desigers like Eileen Gray and Eckart Muthesius also coeval design. ClassiCon is always open for new design ideas.
The brand ClassiCon stands for quality, idividualism, and timeless aesthetics autonomous from modern trends. The fascination of the new formal idea is more important as the awareness level of the originator. Therefore the business discovers more and more new, yound and exciting designers. In Konstantin Grcic's case began a long-lasting cooperation, which the, at that time, new Munich designer as excellent references for the icon Eileen Gray used.
