BENCH BENCH FROM MY PLACE COLLECTION

Kristýna Mikolášková studied design at the Czech Technical University and then at the Prague UMPRUM in the K.O.V. studio under the guidance of Eva Eisler. She has exhibited at numerous Czech and international events such as Milan Design Week and Munich Jewellery Week. Her work explores the relationship between materials and space at various scales – from small objects in the form of jewellery to furniture pieces.

Since 2021, she has formed the duo Mikolášková & Drobná together with Tereza Drobná.

The bench is a continuation of Kristýna Mikolášková’s diploma work My Place, with which she recently completed her Master’s degree at the K.O.V. studio at UMPRUM. She conceived it as a creative experiment, the aim of which was to find a new artistic expression. For My Place she was inspired by the artistic methods of the Bauhaus Vorkurs. First she prepared several quick drawings in which she tried to influence the result minimally and thus loosen the established ways of creating. She then translated these into objects made of solid wood – a chair, a table and then a bench, which we are presenting in the exhibition for the Czech premiere. The fast drawing with charcoal and ink is also reflected in the objects in the form of tanned beech wood, from which the artist created the objects. She subsequently used the charcoal as a material for further drawings.

The concept of the exhibition project for THE DESIGN On Chair – Balancing on the Edge of Comfort for Designblok ’23 was thematically created by curators Eva Slunečková and artist Romana Drdová.

The main motif of the exhibition is the presentation of the author’s design chairs and armchairs, which visitors can sit on (use) during the exhibition and test their function and aesthetics directly in the interior of the gallery.

Among the exhibits on display you can find a chair by Jan Plecháč, Eva Eisler, Filip Kramply, David Šesták or Kristýna Mikolášková. THE DESIGN is a space that aims to exhibit contemporary and applied art side by side in one place. The exhibition will therefore also include sculptures by Michal Janiga and textile works by Lucie Kralík Rosická.
