Creative collective OKOLO currently have this installation on view at the Prague-based gallery and concept store Dox by Qubus.
Called 'Light Sculptures', the exhibition focuses on the history of Czech modernist table lamps dating from 1950 to 1990.
The exhibition presents several fundamental works of Czech design from the second half of the twentieth century and partially documents its stylistic development on the single typological example; with most of the pieces on display presented in such a curatorial selection for the first time.
Acoording to OKOLO, the exhibition is not a retrospective that presents the theme scientifically, or academically, but is an unrestricted selection that depicts the development of the style of this typology using the example of several prominent designers or unique individual designs.
"Through their joint context, we strive to rediscover a neglected chapter in the history of Czech design and typology of table lamps." OKOLO say.
"Our Light Sculptures exhibition at DOX by Qubus concept store was created in collaboration with designer Jakub Berdych from Qubus studio who created a free-form installation using glass tables and visual abstraction of the cables."
The show will remain on view until the 26th of April.
