IDOL

Master work on Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague.

Theme of the project was furniture inspired by members of my own childhood .
The chair idol works with my members of hidden places i was always searching for.
I was always excited about space which would be just mine. After several concepts with wooden furniture I realized,
that this way I canīt describe needs I have today. I donīt need hidden place because my flat plays this role.
What I need is kind of territory, which will be holder of my members. Thatīs a reason why I finnaly worked with
wire construction. This kind of construction give me a chance to hide myself how i want.

PFERD8000

This project was made on Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, in Germany.

The book R.U.R., written by Karel Capek, inspired my design for my object.
The book is telling a story about a world where mankind is excempt from hard work, because everything is done by
of his days on earth. But the last manrobots. A world where children are no longer born and no one knows why. It is also the human arrogance, which leads ultimately to the end of humanity on earth can see the few robots. They have emotions as we have, they fall in love. Their problem is they don´t know how to produce themselves.
As we they can´t have children.

COWSURFING - Together with Benjamin Schief and Samuel Legris

This project was made on Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, in Germany.
The primary task was Minimal shelter - cases, capsules, small rooms.

Why cow?
In the beginning of a project we were understanding the topic of the minimal shelter in a very fundamental way. We were interested in the connection with human past, especially connection of a man and domestic animals which provided him living, social status and sometimes even spiritual benefits.

This kind of thinking brought us automatically to a cow, animal which was from immemorial time part of our lives. Unfortunately today
we meet a cow only in shops.

Our plan was to bring a man and a cow again together but without forcing them. Like a man has benefits from a cow, we wanted also
offer something to her. The result is a common space for each of them, meeting point of a man and one of his immediate animal.

AUTOPROGETTAZIONE 2.0 - LIGHTBOX

This project was made at Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague.
2012 Fablab Torino and Domus announced a competition of equipment for Fablab in Torino.
The competition was inspirated by Enzo Mari´s project Autoprogettazione from 1974. 

I had avoided of all of task categories and tried to figure out an object for chaotic space of a workshop.
Than I focused on a table. I had inspired by classical toolbox and installed inside the light source. This can be easily unplugged
and whole object with all of the content is moveable. Every parts are connected without screws or glue, so everybody
can easily built one for himself.

I get in the selection and the picture below is showing the exhibition in Palazzo Clerici in Milan.
The exhibition was part of Salone del Mobile 2012.

This project was made at Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague.

Project of blown glass for company A je to! from Nový Bor.
In the beginning I was thinking about carafes and glasses. Most of designs count with one glass and one carafe which
contains mostly one litre of liquid. My carafe contains also one litre of liquid, but glasses for two persons.
Concept works with the same volume and different proportion of a glasses.
