Renowned Munich-based designer Konstantin Grcic is profiled in Dwell [July/August 2010], and shows off his collection of chairs, which include Eames, of course.

“Industrial designer Konstantin Grcic has done it all, from spoons to umbrellas to lights, but he’s best known for his data-driven chairs.”

Here’s a photo of Grcic (concealed) with some chairs, including four red Eames plastic chairs.  These too were research driven; Charles Eames often spoke of the importance of science in solving the problems faced by architects and designers.
