Prague Design Week will be at náměstí Republiky

The event will showcase all kinds of items from fashion to furniture

The sixth edition of Prague Design Week will be held April 15-21 on two floors of náměstí Republiky 7. Over 60 exhibitors will take part.

“This year's edition is full of surprises. Exhibitors will present a truly varied mix of art and design: From fashion and jewelry, through product design to fantasy illustrations. In addition, we managed to get beautiful spaces right on náměstí Republiky — two floors of the building will serve as an exhibition space; the sixth and seventh floors will offer a small surprise because they have a wonderful view of Prague,” Ondřej Krynek, founder and organizer Prague Design Week, said.

Exhibitors this year will include Petr Kopecký and his products from naturally dried wood, under the brand EnjoyTimber.com, and the young designer Anna Jožová, who has made a series of vases decorated with shards of discarded glass in a collection called Eternity.

This year in the jewelry category one can find Costa Rica–inspired by Katia Kolinger or Milan Nováček and his luxurious pearl creations. Promising new faces include Gabriela Pustková, who focuses on the production of original, hand-woven wool tapestries, or Michaela Janková and Antonín Sláčik, representatives of Aspoň Tohle, in which they work with concrete using classical sculpture methods.

Prague Design Week’s stated vision remains the same: Its goal is to show exhibited products not only as finished things but also the process of its creation, from the initial idea, through designs and prototypes to the final work.

“For this reason, visitors will again have the opportunity to try their hand at production as part of the upcoming workshops,” Krynek said.

The event is held under the auspices of the Culture Minister Antonín Staněk.
