Prague Design Week 2017 to exhibit work of 82 designers in the Dancing House

This year’s spring festivities in Prague will feature design. From April 10-16, the fourth year of the iconic Prague Design Week exhibition will be held on four floors of the Dancing House, where more than 80 Czech and foreign designers, fashion artists, craftsmen and design students will present their work and the story behind its creation.

Prague Design Week 2017 will showcase special interactive installations using modern technologies. A special focus will be on ecological designs as well as collections that draw inspiration from traditional handicrafts. The exhibition, where some of the artwork will be for sale, will be accompanied by lectures, film screenings and workshops with the designers. As part of a week-long admission (150 CZK, reduced 100 CZK), each visitor receives a free bilingual catalog that serves as an exhibition guide.

Do not miss:

MICKEYPHON is an interactive, audiovisual, kinetic sculpture inspired by Mickey Mouse and created for Disney by a group called panGenerator. The Mickeyphon samples sounds from the environment, rotating in the direction of their source, and then transmutes them into musical rhythmic sequences. The final sound is shaped by the audience taking part in the interaction with the Mickeyphon. The sound layer system is enriched with interactive visuals presented on the cylindrical display, located on the moveable part of the Mickeyphon.

After 5pm | a collection of wine goblets
After 5pm will be a zoomorphic family of wine goblets. The collection emphasizes a sensory approach using glass. In order to be expressive, After 5pm will offer a range of coherent products from the functional to conceptual.

The voice of the forest
At this year’s Prague Design Week, ŠKODA AUTO has decided to bring the forest to you. Stop for a while at its installation that will instantly teleport you to a tranquil forest meadow, a delightful stream or a gently lapping forest lake. Join ŠKODA on a virtual trip to a quiet corner of nature that you helped create.

Ivan Jurečka, alias i1art, uses gramophone discs in which he carves different motifs, mainly portraits. He also uses vinyl discs as a material for creating 3D sculptures. His initial motivation was the question of different kinds of values: of things, human lives, thoughts as well as the vinyl records used against their original purpose.
