Brilliant By Design
Exhibition showcasing Czech Artistry in Glass and Porcelain, Design Museum, Gent, Belgium, 28th March to 1st June.
The exhibition presents designer glass and porcelain made by contemporary Czech companies. Since the mid-19th century, when showcasing their products at exhibitions around the world, Czech glass manufacturers have used designs by academically trained artists. Nowadays, artists and designers are an integral part of the entire manufacturing process. Czech glass and porcelain products owe part of their worldwide success to the designers’ willingness to push the boundaries of what is technically possible. Products by companies with world reputation such as Moser, Thun, AJETO, Crystalex, Lhotský will be on display.
