There is a selection of installation photos of our latest show dedicated to work of Lex Pott.

Dutch designer Lex Pott experiments with the materials and their distinctive characteristics. His design of furniture and interior accessories reveals the unusual manufacturing processes, hidden beauty of used materials, their natural brutality and tactile character.

OKOLO/Pedal Project Studio presents a modest selection of a small simple objects that were created as the real results of Pott's previous experiments. In the form of small racks, shelves, scissors, vases, designer applies knowledge from his previous monumental and conceptually-based projects, based on the unusual materials and their manufacturing processes. They recently gave designer the way to the creation of practical everyday objects, manufacturing by real companies, including Hay, Wallpaper, Nomess or &Tradition.


We collaborated on Casa Luminosa exhibition for Dolce Vita magazine for Designblok 2015 in Prague.

Dolce Vita magazine returns to the heyday of the Italian design and presents Casa Luminosa installation. Inspired by interior experiments, back from the period of the 1960s to the 1980s, the installation documents to the radical conception of living environment, proposed by many influential designers and architects of that period. The phenomenon of radical design apartments, envisioned as art galleries, disco clubs or lighting installations for prominent intelectual elite, is represented by our very own Casa Luminosa. Composed of mirrored pavilion and furnished with the examples of Italian design, the installation pays homage to radical interiors concepts, mostly disappeared many years ago.

We have visited Jean (Hans) Arp's sculpture atelier in Meudon in 2013.











In collaboration with OKOLO, Brussels-based designer Maarten de Ceulaer presented his creative process and inspiration in the installation called Laboratory.

Models, sketches, drawings, objects of desire and inspiration, memories, catalogues and more symbolize the ingredients of de Ceulaer's creative thinking which is often based on the real natural and chemical phenomenas. Shown at the installation resembling real chemical laboratory, all the de Ceulaer's objects are presented within the context of laboratory glass made by Czech company Kavalier. The installation symbolically framed the exhibits as a rare elements of creativity. De Ceulaer showed creative background of six of his projects: Nomad Light Molecule, Transformations for Fendi, Mutation, Suitcase for Nilufar, Woof and Warp for Moroso, Grid.
