In collaboration with Vitra Design Museum in Germany and Z33 Hasselt in Belgium, the exhibition is Grcic’s debut in Asia

In collaboration with Vitra Design Museum in Germany and  Z33 Hasselt in Belgium, the exhibition is Grcic’s debut in Asia and the largest show to date, illustrating  how the designer's perception of the world shapes new objects, and how these objects inspire a new view of the world subsequently.

The exhibition is divided into four sections: a home interior (Life Space), a design studio (Work Space), an urban environment (Public Space) and the Object Space.  The first three spaces demonstrate how Grcic situates his work in the present day, while also shedding light on questions that occupy him and revealing how he envisions the future of design.
