Some time ago I have prepared curated slideshow of my Italian architectural adventurous for New York-based blog Sight Unseen. Thanks editor Monica Khemsurov very much for editing it and very nice story which prepared on our activities.

All the houses you will see in the future here as well or in one of our upcoming publications.



For the special fashion issue of Prague-based Esprit magazine, we have prepared this simple editorial including illustration of some lesser known fashion Icons and text on them.

Editorial includes Willardy handbag from the 1950s, Emilio Pucci and his stylish 1960s transparent helmet for air hostesses of the Braniff Airlines, Oliver Goldsmith eye wear and Lego shoes by Balenciaga or experimental jewelry from 1970s. Everything together creates hidden history of fashion accessories.

We have visited famous Czech sculptor Stanislav Kolíbal (born 1925) at his Prague home and we have discovered several beautiful things.

One of them is this book on sculptor Alexander Calder. Published by Aimé Maeght of Maeght Éditeur in 1963 in Paris, the book is limited edition brochure including graphics by Calder, as well as photos of his beautiful atelier and home in Saché, France.

Stanislav Kolíbal deeply admires Alexander Calder`s work and in the 1990s he stayed in Saché workshop for some weeks to make residential work there.

More on Kolíbal in the future!

Nun


Do You know what is it? It is wonderfully designed shade for one of the lamps which you can see at our Light Sculptures exhibition opening today at DOX by Qubus.

We have found it in the studio of our friend, designer, collector and big enthusiast Jan Jaroš who runs Cohn auction. This shade comes from 1963 and was designed by Josef Hůrka, creative director of NAPAKO lightning company. His "Nun lamp" is one of the most elegant design from the 1960s and its simple steel shade documents Hurka`s formal skills.

See it at DOX by Qubus today!
