The Czech Design Week festival presents successful pieces in the field of glass and porcelain

The new collections of table glass and vases at the festival are presented, for example, by the glass brand Klimchi and the talented designer František Jungvirt, who acts as its creative director. He also presents the new vases he created for the flower shop Provóní.

Dominika Petrtýlova is also exhibiting at the event with her Lollypop glass collection, and a glass cabinet named Cabinet Superfluum by Tomáš Kučera is on display. Designer Anna Jožová, who is dedicated to her own work and also creates within the Kombo studio (together with Vlastimil Šenkýř), also presents her works. Slovak designer Štefan Sekáč also brought interesting works.

From porcelain and ceramics, I would definitely single out Gréta Kušnírová, who plays a lot with volcanic glazes and creates unique and colorful vases. The Hidden Factory studio, created in collaboration with the Japanese designer Saki Matsumoto, is also worthy of attention. Undoubtedly, the works of the students of the Product Design Studio at FUD UJEP, led by Jan Čapek, will also be of interest.

In cooperation with the Bratislava platform Virvar, the designer Paula Benčaťová from Nitra, who remarkably combines design and painting, also presents her work.

From furniture and interior design, you can see the new collection from the Czech brand Triant or the Slovak modular furniture brand Variedo. Creation is also shown by new brands such as Monotropa or Space of Space.

There is also work by design school students. For example, Petr Vondruška is exhibiting an outdoor armchair, Aneta Honzová an outdoor PIET bench, and Matyáš Barák a My Light, which resembles children’s springs.

Video mapping on the Mánes building

The iconic functionalist space of the Mánes exhibition hall, created at the turn of the 20s and 30s of the last century according to the design of the architect Otakar Novotný for the Society of Fine Artists Mánes, no doubt already charms with its design and architecture.

As part of the event, on Friday, September 2, 2022, around 9 p.m., the outer walls of the Mánesa building will be made even more special with a video mapping called Expoform prepared by students of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art in Pilsen.
