Monza by Konstantin Grcic for Plank

Milan 09: Munich-based designer Konstantin Grcic has designed Monza, a new chair for Italian brand Plank.


The wood and plastic chair is Grcic's latest design for the company, following the influential Miura stool and Myto chair.


Here's some text from Plank:



After the projects Miura and Myto the MONZA chair embodies the further development and deepening of the collaboration between KONSTANTIN GRCIC and PLANK.


The project connects the materials wood and plastic injection moulding and hence, the artisan roots of PLANK with the characteristics of modern industrial design.

The MONZA armchair is conceived as a simple wood-construction which formally refers to a typology of chairs originating in Scandinavia. The chair’s main character is defined by a back-/armrest in plastic moulding, which on the one hand serves the chair’s structure and on the other provides comfort and colour.

Application areas: Contract, Gastronomy, Living and Office.

Technical details: Armchair, ash wooden structure – natural lacquered or stained-lacquered in black or wenge. Backrest in polypropylene in the colours in black, grey white, traffic red, wine red, light blue, yellow green. Stackable.
