The enormous public attention they received for chair_ONE unavoidably led to a certain categorization of Konstantins design. They were suddenly identified with the chair’s angular/facetted style. Although he do love the its stealth-bomber aesthectic, he felt threatened by the trap of repeating myself with this successful formula.

A commission from Plank to design a monoblock bar stool in plastic was the perfect opportunity for him to re-invent his vocabulary of shapes.

Konstantin Grcic was keen to move on from the hard edge to a much softer design. The Miura stool is strongly based on principles of construction. However, its shape was conceived by working in a much more sculptural manner. The complex free-form surfaces were all designed on the computer.
