Czech design – two words that virtually belong together as Czechs have long had a reputation for having golden hands that could create anything, and create it well. Czechs have been creative throughout the ages, the Cubist movement for example was an excellent time for Czechoslovakia to shine, and shine it did. Even though the Cubist movement had its origins in Paris, the city of Prague was where numerous Cubist buildings were erected that can still be found today as a glorious symbol of the country’s Avant-Garde past. It is also of cultural interest to note that the city also boasts a Cubist interior, one of the only interiors that still actually exists and that can be found in the famous Grand Café Orient in the House of the Black Madonna designed by architect Josef Gočár. It is also interesting to note that Czechoslovakia’s participation in the 1958 Brussels World Fair made particular waves with an international audience that was seeking modern, sleek design products. Unfortunately, innovative Czech design was put on hold during the Communist regime but did however experience a huge rebirth after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Nowadays you cannot walk around the capital city of Prague or even leaf through an international design publication without noticing that Czech design is once again a hot topic. With sleek and sometimes downright whimsical designs of architecture, furniture, glass, home décor and more, innovative Czech design is here to stay. On our Lifestyle portal we wish to present to you the best of the best in Czech design by top artists that have the credentials and experience to match and are continuously producing original pieces of art.
