Ulisse by Konstantin Grcic
Ulisse is a minimalist design created by Munich-based designer Konstantin Grcic for ClassiCon. Ulisse is a daybed that becomes a symbol for relaxing and comfort, and with its large, free-stretched reclining surface, almost looks like a pictogram of a daybed. In its simple, symbolic elegance, the daybed arouses associations with archaic furniture of African or Japanese origin that were sources of inspiration for many designers of modernism. Ulisse is thus much more than a purely functional piece of furniture: it becomes an expression of the connection between modernism and the present, a symbol for a moment of rest and luxury.
