Konstantin Grcic and Mayday

Flos has released a limited edition of Mayday to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the brilliant lamp designed by Konstantin Grcic, winner of the Compasso d’Oro award.
We went to his studio in Berlin to have a word with Grcic about Mayday, function, inspiration and much more.

“Mayday is a thing that is simple and obvious, self-explanatory and therefore intuitive. Everyone uses it in their own way, and that’s the special thing about the Mayday lamp – it keeps on being useful, reinventing itself again and again.”
