Brand Highlight

ClassiCon

The ClassiCon brand stands for quality, individuality and a timeless aesthetic—regardless of passing fashions. More important than the degree of fame achieved by the designer is a demonstrated fascination with new formal concepts. This focus helps ClassiCon to continually discover exciting young designers. In the case of Konstantin Grcic, this has resulted in a longstanding collaboration, which the Munich designer took advantage of right from the start by including references to the iconic Eileen Gray in his Orcus secretary. ClassiCon produces and sells the Eileen Gray Collection as worldwide licensee of Aram Designs Ltd, London. In the early 1970s, Eileen Gray began to collaborate with Zeev Aram to develop her furniture and lamps for series production. In 1973 Eileen Gray signed a Worldwide contract with Aram Designs, London, to bring her designs into production for the first time. The ClassiCon signature provides a guarantee that only high-grade materials and methods are used in production – meeting all ecological requirements – and that every piece of furniture has passed strict quality control. Their logo offers the assurance that each limited edition is an authentic replica of the original, made with the consent of the rights holders.

Designer Highlight

Eckart Muthesius

Following studies at the Associated State School for Applied Arts in Berlin and the London Polytechnic, Eckart Muthesius became a master student in the studio of his father, Hermann Muthesius, the founder of the German Werkbund. In 1929, Muthesius met Prince Yeshwant Rao Holkar Bahadur in Oxford, the later Maharajah of Indore, who commissioned him to build and furnish his palace “Manik Bagh”. Completed four years later, the palace was a masterpiece of the Art Deco style. 

Muthesius complemented his architecture with his own furniture and lamp designs. He went on to take up a post as head of the Board of Planning and Restoration of the State of Indore from 1936 to 1939. When the war broke out, he was forced to flee India and return to Berlin, where he worked as a freelance architect.
