Konstantin Grcic一直在英國的The John Makepeace School受訓學習製造櫃架, 之後到倫敦的Royal College of Art修讀設計。1991年他搬到慕尼黑開設他自己的工作室Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design。他在同年開始和不同的大型公司合作設計生產家具, 燈具。他把「功能」這兩個字重新定義, 變成帶點幽默、菱角但同樣實用的新設計。每件產品都經過反覆考量和使用不同物料生產作對比。以終極簡化聞名的設計令他常常被冠以「極簡主義者」, 不過他曾表示自己只是比較喜歡以簡樸作出發點。
Konstantin Grcic was trained as a cabinet maker at The John Makepeace School (Dorset, England) before studying Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Since setting up his own practice Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID) in Munich in 1991, he has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. Konstantin 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 pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity.
