A visit from the outer space
The minimalist design of Disc Collection combines metal with the highest-quality crystal, shaped by master glassmakers to absolute perfection and hand-blown into wooden forms. The elemental shape is reminiscent of a flying saucer, floating through space. The friendly familiar form of this light fixture in clear, silver or copper finish adds its strong esthetic character to any interior. Metallic reflections add a further perspective to the object and shift our concepts about the possibilities of glass to a higher level.
The Studio was founded in 1990 during the Vitra Design Museum workshop led by Denis Santachiara. At that time Michal Froněk and Jan Němeček studied Architecture at AAAD Prague (Academy of Arts Prague). Jan had a car and could drive them to the workshop in Switzerland, the start of a 25-year collaboration. They focus on industrial design, interiors and the reconstruction of historical and industrial buildings. Professor Michal and Jan now head the Atelier of Design at AAAD Prague, they inspire and influence the youngest generation of Czech talents. They have become ambassadors of Czech design. Their works are represented in collections of prestigious galleries and museums such as the Metropolitan Museum New York.
