Mingx

KonstantinGrcic_Mingx_Driade_1Mingx refere-se à dinastia chinesa Ming, que acompanhou o início de um riquíssimo período de trocas comerciais com o Ocidente.
E Konstantin Grcic nem é destes maneirismos, mas agora que o fez fê-lo bem feito.
As arquetípicas cadeiras chinesas foram transformadas numa linguagem moderna, no material moderno por excelência – um metal.
O conforto da escala, da armação do apoio de braços e da curvatura do espaldar é sugerido pelo desenho, reduzido ao essencial para remeter apenas ao mito da cadeira chinesa.
Mais uma novidade da design week milanesa.

Mingx refers to the Chinese Ming Dynasty, which followed the beginning of a very rich period of trading with the West.
Even if Konstantin Grcic is not into these mannerisms, now that he is he made them well.
The archetypal Chinese chair was transformed into a modern language, in a modern material par excellence – metal.
The comfort of the scale, the frame of the armrest and the curvature of the backrest is suggested by the drawing and reduced to the essentials to refer only to the myth of the Chinese chair.
Another novelty from the milanese design week.
