A synergy of Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design and Bureau Mirko Borsche on the occasion of Milan Design Week 2016, resulting in a sound and light installation.

On the occasion of the 2016 Salone Internazionale del Mobile, KALEIDOSCOPE and ZEITmagazin presented EPOCSODIELAK, an exhibition by Konstantin Grcic and Mirko Borsche.

The exhibition, hosted by KALEIDOSCOPE’s project space in Milan, is the result of a creative collaboration between the two renowned German designers, specialized in the product and graphic design fields respectively, who will present a new light and sound installation.

EPOCSODIELAK is a 3x2x1 meter, free-standing Disco Totem. Made in black powder coated steel and chain-link fencing, it is equipped with a tight cluster of strobe lights, lasers, a fog machine and mix desks. Powered by a 1200 Watt dynamic sound system, the project proposes a self-sufficient sound/light unit, which has enough whack to turn any space into a state-of-the-art disco.

On the occasion of the exhibition, Bureau Mirko Borsche has designed a special merchandise concept, appropriating iconic symbols from the 90s which expand on the narrative behind the disco totem. The merchandise set, composed of T-shirts and tote bags, is produced by Slam Jam and is available to buy at

The studio is responsible for the art direction of KALEIDOSCOPE since 2014 and the creative direction for weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT and ZEITmagazin since 2007.
