Item description for Goethe / Grcic: Quotidian Objects by Cornelia Lauf, Ludovico Pratesi & Konstantin Grcic...
Up-and-coming designer Konstantin Grcic works with everyday objects--everyday objects that just happen to have belonged to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. These apparently banal objects--which lost their importance and were forgotten after Goethe's death over 150 years ago--are now reinterpreted by Grcic, the artist who Achille Castiglioni considers his ''spiritual heir.'' Among the objects is a pair of the great writer's boots, one of his belts, several buttons, a glove, and various precious stones. Grcic juxtaposes these objects with his own creations: ashtrays, washbasins, pens, and hangers. Grcic is also responsible for the graphic design of this volume, making it a truly unique document.
