This great vintage Fiat pedaling car originated during the 1920s caught our eyes very much.








We started to collaborate with UDU, Institute of Art History of Academy of Sciences of Czech republic on design of its Window Gallery in Prague.

The first installation has presented new book Naprej published by UDU. The book, edited by Rostislav Švácha and collective, documents history of Czech architecture for sport use. Our installation included five windows with the colorful backgrounds showing some selected chapters and photos from the book, as well as some sport equipment next to them.

Thanks UDU and curator Vendula Hnídková for nice collaboration.

Two outstanding projects by Italian modernist Luciano Baldessari (1896 – 1982) make waves.

Baldessari was deeply interested in curves and organic forms in architecture as well as design. This is documented by two of his most famous projects: Luminator floor lamp designed in 1929 and Breda exhibition pavilion from 1952. Both of the projects represent unique play with curves and organic forms with different materials and scale.

Luminator, later produced by Luceplan, is made out of metal and sculptural quality is represented by elegantly curved steel rod. Breda pavilion is an architectural sculpture made out of concrete, which is both functional and decorative, in the same way as Luminator.






One year ago we have visited unique organic house by Jacques Gillet in Liége, Belgium. Now our report published in Domus 966.

Jacques Gillet built this sculptural house for his brother and his wife in 1967 together with sculptor Félix Roulin and engineer René Greisch. The house is completed in metal wires structure covered with thin surface of concrete. The natural structure blends with its surrounding and resembles rock.

Last month we have visited solo exhibition of our Vienna-based friend, designer Marco Dessí. Still Life at MAK in Vienna is the showcase of his design work as well as inspirations.

We took some detailed pictures of the exhibits including Marco's work from the last years as well as some objects which inspire his designer work. Dessí works as a designer in the tradition of the pure and practical modernist design as formulated by Max Bill, Marcello Nizzoli or Dieter Rams. But his objects are always enriched by sense of humor and inspirational context in the function and form.

Curated by Marlies Wirth, the exhibition is set up in the minimalist installation, where all the objects communicate each other in a simple way.
