Czech Creative Group OKOLO at London Design Festival
The Czech creative group OKOLO, winner of Czech Grand Design 2013, has been invited to participate in the exhibition project ‘Designo Pitch’ organised as part of London Design Festival. From 19 September to 21 September chosen designers will have their exhibition stands set up on the Exhibition Road in London to present their work and offer it on sale to visitors. OKOLO has been approached to take part in the project by Johanna Agermann Ross, founder of the Disegno magazine.
OKOLO is a creative group with a focus on the fields of design, architecture, art, style, fashion, and the entire scope of cultural city life which, thus, becomes the subject of our activities in Internet journalism, curatorial exhibitions, and special projects and events through which we strive to collaborate with creative individuals from various fields. Interconnecting them and searching for exceptional contexts, we attempt at finding new ways of expressing fine art creativity and methods of its presentation.
The group was founded in 2009 on an impulse by Adam Štěch, Jakub Štěch, Matěj Činčera and Jan Kloss. Key interest focuses on creating original projects in the form of publications, exhibitions and products. Our projects include four issues of OKOLO magagzine, special design books such as OKOLO Mollino or Radical Sitting for Depot Basel gallery, curated exhibitions in Prague, Bratislava, Lodz, London, Stockholm or Milan. OKOLO collaborated with Depot Basel, SightUnseen, Architonic, Domus, Wallpaper, Modern, Phillips de Pury and more.
