Bohemia 1911, Manufacturer: Modernist,


Another of the designs by architect Pavel Janák: "... wedges, arrows, stakes, knives, levers, which physically overpower the mass, are mostly inclined surfaces." The author is one of the creators of the world's unique Czech cubism, which widely applied the cubism of French art to Czech architecture and applied art. Architect Janák saw the inclined surface as an element to control, artistically transform and spiritualize dead matter; to disturb the calm and rational balance of horizontals and verticals. Reproduction of the original, housed in the UPM. Hand-decorated glazed porcelain cast.


Pavel Janák (1882 - 1956)

A versatile artist: architect, urban planner, designer and teacher, Pavel Janák was a leading theoretician of the Czech Cubist movement, a proponent of interwar Art Deco and radical Modernism embodied by Functionalism, but also the author of excellent reconstructions of important historical buildings.
