There is no difference in designing🪑 🧥 🕶 or 🚀. It is only about the way of thinking. This makes everybody different and unique. Each project we do is taken through a strategic process, resulting in a meaningful, adaptive solution.
We are not always trying to follow the trends, but looking back into the history and combine the traditions with contemporary or futuristic possibilities. One cannot exist without the other. Life is about learning new things and we live in a cycles. Change is inevitable so that something new can arise. Less is more and at the same time less is bore. Creating and living both directions teaches us being in harmony with logic and emotions. We are all comfortable with old and at the same we want something new. And creating something new is possible only with the knowledge of heritage. We can use what have been invented to discover something new. The technology and evolution pushes us faster to undescovered.

There is a huge power, authenticity of craftsmanship, elegance, re-knowledge hidden in each of our products. After graduating from Umprum in Prague, we established our studio in 2020 with the clear goal of producing quality contemporary designer glass on the border of art and design.
Our production takes place in the heart of Europe. We work and are based in Prague and Nový Bor, where all our glass is manufactured. It all starts with an author’s design, which is consulted with glass craftsmen before the actual production takes place. In many cases, however, glass is its factor, but that fascinates us. Sometimes it surprises us and forces us to experiment. Your interiors and human desire to be different inspire us to create something exceptional, with long-lasting value.
