KYRRE STOOL FROM THE SERIES GOOD TIMES THAT’S BEEN WASTED

Ondřej Čižmář studies in the K.O.V. studio at the Prague UMPRUM.

As a designer, he enjoys pushing the boundaries of art and design and challenging conventional norms. He likes to try unusual methods and venture into uncharted waters. The results are often new connections or unconventional meanings that provoke thought, spark conversation and often controversy.

Designer Ondřej Čižmář was inspired by the bark beetle and disappearing folkloric ornaments in his Kyrre stool. The practical piece of furniture from IKEA was originally designed primarily as a uniform, easy to make, cheap and timeless solution to a problem in the home. It was in mass production, however, that Čižmář saw its diminishing relevance and decided to redesign the stool in his own way. His hand-decorated workmanship is a visual manifesto that juxtaposes standardized and proprietary manufacturing and design practices.

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.
