‘Life Space,’ ‘Work Space,’ ‘Public Space’ and ‘Object Space’ at exhibition ‘Konstantin Grcic – Panorama’ stage fictional scenarios confronting the viewer with the designer’s inspirations, challenges and questions, as well as placing Konstantin Grcic’s works in a greater social context. Extensive research into multiple questions for the near future on how our private and public spaces will evolve was made for each of the spaces. This information – pieces of news articles, opinions, questions, statistics, design or architectural proposals linked to topics was collected to research pages pieces, and are addressed in Grcic’s speculative installations.
