The ICF Group Introduces Konstantin Grcic’s Remo Chair
Remo Chair by Konstantin Grcic: Remo’s defining feature is a sophisticated interlocking joint that attaches the curved shell of its seat and back to a horizontal backrest. This two-piece construction combines mechanical production with hand finishing and results in a strong and exceptionally comfortable seat. “The shell we have actually made in two parts and that’s kind of special,” said Grcic. “It could be cut out of one, but by gluing the backrest to the spine it gives the piece a more free shape.”
Remo is produced in three versions – a stackable chair or a non-stackable chair with bent plywood legs and a stackable metal-legged chair. The wood-legged versions have a warm and friendly appearance and are extremely light and therefore easy to move around. Says Grcic, “It’s a chair probably for restaurants, for cafes, for bistros, but it could be a kitchen chair”. The wood chairs are finished in natural ash or stained in colors – chalk, walnut, grey, black.
The metal-legged version of Remo offers enhanced functionality for contract use. The plywood shell is finished in natural ash or colored with a matt open grain in white, grey, black or yellow. Its metal legs are matched to the chair’s shell color. Moreover, the lacquered wooden shell can be produced in custom colors to match any interior space.
Work by Konstantin Grcic forms part of the permanent collections of the world´s most important design museums including MoMA and the Pompidou Center in Paris. The Remo chair joins other award winning designs from Grcic as part of the ICF Collection.
