HBL Events: Comfort by Konstantin Grcic at Saint-Étienne Biennale

Wednesday, 24 November 2010

German industrial designer Konstantin Grcic has curated an exhibition for the 2010 Saint-Étienne Biennale which attempts to deconstruct the idea of comfort, celebrating common items which have enhanced our lives.
Running until 5th December, the exhibition features physical objects such as scissors, the Post-It note, the Nespresso coffee capsule, the audio book, the pregnancy test and Velcro, as well as popular technological innovations like barcodes and Wi-fi. Comfort follows on in its focus from Design Real, the exhibition curated by Grcic which ran November 2009 - February 2010 at London's Serpentine Gallery.
