It was a pleasure to me as a creative director to put together three of my favourite designers - Arik Levy, Jean-Marie Massaud and Marco Sousa Santos – and the Czech rising glassworks Kvetna.
I gave them a carte blanche to create a drinking set from hand blown glass.
The project gave a birth of the Prestige collection – a unique collection of its kind in the Czech Republic as for the first time important foreign designers did collaborate on a mass producted series.
The Prestige collection was inaugurated during the Prague design week Designblok opening on October 1st.
