Vitra hub at designblok reinterprets office furniture by konstantin grcic

Presented during designblok 15 — prague’s annual design and fashion week — the vitra hub is a experimental installation completed by students of the city’s academy of arts, architecture and design (AAAD). responding to the event’s overarching theme of ‘freedom’, the hub functions as a creative outpost, encouraging public participation and reappropriation. the work incorporates two major pieces by renowned german designer konstantin grcic: ‘hack’, a flexible table system that seeks to anticipate the changing requirements of both companies and employees, and ‘allstar’, a chair that seeks to defy typical office stereotypes.
