About

"Mingx" is an outdoor chair, designed by Konstantin Grcic and manufactured by Driade, with structure in printed steel sheet and rod with protective cataphoresis treatment polyester painted in orange, light grey, bronze or black colors. Feet in ABS. Cushion seat cover in outdoor fabric. Outdoor use. DIMENSIONS: D. 20", W. 19.6", H. 33.4", Seat H. 18.5" The design of the Mingx collection has reference to the same tubular profile that also inspired the ZigZag bookcase and develops into an extensive family of elements: seats, stools and tables, establishing a harmonious mutual dialogue that also extends to the bookcase. Mingx collection consists in a rich array of family members that harmoniously interact: chairs, stools and tables. This year, Grcic extends the Mingx collection to include a new set of tables and console tables in elegant oak finish. "Mingx" as a name clearly refers to the Ming dynasty that influenced development of the Chinese culture to the extent of making China the hub of Eastern trade. It's no coincidence that the seats are inspired by the archetype of ancient Chinese, originally made of wood: a chair, an armchair and low chair with armrests and leather seat matching the colour of the metal frame. Two stool options, one with backrest and one without, diversify the set of seats. Tables with black walnut tops and stainless steel tubular frames are also presented in a projecting version, like the desk and coffee table. Four colour options are available for the leather seat: bronze, black, grey and orange. Mingx collection is also available in outdoor version with quartzite or metal tabletops, chairs upholstered with outdoor fabrics and frames with a protective electrophoresis treatment. KONSTANTIN GRCIC was born in Munich in 1965. He apprenticed as a cabinet maker at John Makepeace School in the UK from 1985-1987. In 1990 he earned a MA in Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art in London. He founded Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID) in 1991. The office specializes in various fields of design ranging from furniture and Industrial products to exhibition design and architecture related work. KGID is working for some leading names of the design industry. Many of their products have received international design awards and form part of the permanent collections of the world's most prestigious museums. Grcic defines function in human terms, combining formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products is characterized by a careful research into the history of design and architecture and his passion for technology and materials. Known for paired down-down pieces, Grcic is often called a Minimalist but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.
