Konstantin Grcic discusses the painstaking design process that went into creating the Bell Chair, his new product for Magis, in a talk recorded by Dezeen for the chair's launch today.

Grcic spoke to Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs in a talk recorded using video conferencing application Zoom.

In the video, Grcic discussed the design of the Bell Chair, a stackable chair formed of one piece of injection-moulded recycled polypropylene.

The chair, which Grcic describes in the video as "an egg shell with four c-shaped legs," is a lightweight kilograms and costs 70 Euros.

According to Grcic, it was designed within a very strict set of parameters in order to ensure that the final product would be as cost-effective, energy efficient and sparing in use of materials as possible.

In order to meet these guidelines, Grcic and Magis collaborated to design a recyclable chair that comes in three colours, is made of industrial waste produced in the manufacturing of other injection-moulded plastic chairs, and takes less than a minute to be produced.
