magis traffic platform

Traffic is a collection of furniture using steel rod and upholstery. The correlation between the three-dimensional line drawing of the metal rod and the geometric volumes of the cushions marks a significant shift from the common connotation of wire furniture. The unassuming simplicity of its conception imparts a pleasant casualness. The refinement of detailing and carefully tailored proportions stimulate a resounding elegance. The inherent logic of construction creates a formal grammar which allows for a number of functional declinations to form the Traffic collection: an armchair, a two seater sofa, a small bench (which also serves as ottoman), a chaise longue.

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionable currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.

All pieces are offered with expanded polyurethane foam cushions, upholstery in fabric or leather and a powder-coated metal structure. Optional tablet in acrylic Hi-Macs stone is also available. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.
