FOR YOUR SUCCESS

Qubus

Česká republika / Company ID: 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 Empress
Client Lasvit
Year 2016
Description Inspired by the traditional shape of chandeliers popular during the reign of Empress Maria Theresa, this contemporary reflection on the iconic style brings refreshing new details. The production of its individual trimmings is stopped prior to their final cutting and polishing, showing the pressed glass including its overburden edge. The Empress chandelier is an example of excellent craftsmanship in combination with the raw sense of the unfinished trimming.
