Lamp No. 21616 successfully represented the Czech Republic at the largest design exhibition in the world! The Salone del Mobile International Furniture and Design Fair was inaugurated in Milan on April 17, 2018, and there were beautiful and innovative design pieces of companies from around the world. The Czech Centers, in cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, decided to take advantage of this extraordinary event and created for Salone del Mobile an exhibition titled The Story of Czech Design with the subtitle From Cubism to XXIst Century.
As the title suggests, the exhibition presents the development of the design in the Czech lands, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary celebration of the founding of Czechoslovakia.
It is interesting that the exhibition is traveling, so after the performance in Milan, it invited Poland, Croatian Zagreb, and other European capitals - Paris, Helsinki, Sofia, Budapest, Bratislava... This year (2019) is going to be performed in Germany. Careful selection of works that characterize the best of Czechoslovak and Czech desigsn were made by Jakub Berdych Karpelis and Josef Tomsei from the Qubus design studio. And our lamp has been chosen together with other icons, such as a pocket knife "fish" or sport shoes "Botas" from Bata (see above the photo from the exhibition in Milano, Italy) or a bicycle brand Favorit.
