DESIGNING SERVICES
FOR YOUR SUCCESS

Qubus

Česká republika / Company ID: 28894456 QR +

The works created by Qubus, the studio that Jakub Berdych co-founded 16 years ago, reflect a distinctively Central European sarcasm in their commentary on the world around us, contemporary lifestyles and prejudices, and various forms of nationalism. Jakub Berdych’s designs challenge conventional ideas about materials and even objects themselves as they blur the boundaries between usability, functionality, appropriateness and expressiveness. Qubus Design Studio also works on commissions for interiors, architecture, installations and graphic design. It showcases contemporary conceptual design and organises exhibitions, as well as operating two brick-and-mortar shops. --- Qubus designs are produced in workshops based in the regions, where they support local traditions, manufacturing techniques and materials. All Qubus products are handmade, either by the designers themselves or by craftsmen with whom they have successfully collaborated for many years.

Completed projects

Project Perm-anent
Client QUBUS
Year 2018
Description Objects of paleontology. An assumed outline of a possible discovery. An idea how potential future finds could today ideally look like. Strictly geometrical forms inserted into magmatic hexagonal blocks, shaped both robotically and by hand. Material selected at random directly from the rock of a quarry. Individual blocks, so far untouched by a human hand. They are messages from the period when our planet and universe began developing.
