Design simplicity and glassblowing mastery
These monumental pieces demonstrate Bomma’s unrivaled know-how and the exceptional clarity of Bohemian crystal. Their sheer weight and size reaches the limits of what can be achieved by freeform mouth blowing. Unique world-wide and displaying the subtle variations of hand craft, these impressive domes embody design simplicity and glassmaking mastery.
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.
