Konstantin Grcic, 2021
Light and easy to handle, Locker Box supports agile work routines – not just in the office but also when working from home. Available in a selection of colours, it also comes in both a smaller and larger version: Locker Box small and Drop Box.
Flexible work methods have been transforming our offices for several years now. Work is no longer confined to an assigned desk, but occurs in changing locations – according to whether the task requires productive exchanges with colleagues or quiet concentration. It is therefore practical for employees to always have their personal utensils with them. Konstantin Grcic teamed up with Vitra to develop the Locker Box and Locker Box small: two compact, portable caddies of different size that can hold work tools, such as a laptop, keyboard, papers, pens, cables, hard drives, headphones etc. and be easily stored away at the end of the day. Both caddies have a simple sturdy construction. Two side panels made of recycled plastic are joined together using aluminium tubes. The top tube serves as the handle. A structure of textile panels with welded seams is suspended on the remaining five tubes to form compartments. Locker Box and Locker Box small are light and easy to handle, and provide a useful tool for agile work routines in the workplace, as well as in the home office. They come in a choice of colours and can be quickly dismantled if required. Name tags for personalisation are offered in various hues. Locker Box and Locker Box small are complemented by the larger version Drop Box.
Konstantin Grcic was trained as a cabinetmaker at Parnham College in Dorset before studying industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London. In 1991 he set up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Design. The Vitra Design Museum devoted a monographic exhibition to Grcic and his work in 2014.
