preview: milan design week 2008 – myto chair

last year I attended at the k2007, world’s largest plastics trade fair, where basf presented the new kontstantin grcic chair. we just have seen some miniatures and the process of designing the chair. on this year’s designweek (salone internazionale del mobile 16.-21.4.2008) in milan konstantin grcic will launch myto at the triennale design museum.

and as we know chairs let a designer heart beat. they are the icons of design. ludwig mies van der rohe, one of the most outstanding architects, designed one of the first cantilevered chairs in 1927. once he said that it is easier to build a house than to design a good chair.
