It is here! The first pictures from our installation Back to the Future. The others you will be able to see in our next issue of OKOLO magazine, which we will present at Designblok 2010 in October.
An unique curatorial installation located in one of the suites of the iconic Ještěd Hotel is a symbolical homage to the historic and fine-art significance of this remarkable modernist building. The entire styling of one hotel room represents various futuristic and cosmic designer visions from the past to the present. Thus, the objects that “became our future in their presence” conceptually complement the overall futuristic atmosphere of the building, designed by Karel Hubáček, as well as the interiors inspired by cosmic optimism and designed by Otakar Binar. Back to the Future is an experimental exhibition that will transport visitors to visions of the near and far future by means of artifacts of all types and various visual styles and epochs. The constant human attempts at innovation and acceleration are symbolically depicted not only by furniture and lighting, but also by many other products that express, each in a specific way, the formal, functional, philosophical, and theoretical ideas of our predecessors and contemporaries. All these ideas are always ahead of their time.
