Křehký Stories 2013 / New Biedermeier

“The New Biedermeier stimulates festive emotions in everyday life, adds another dimension to experiences, and transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. It makes us devote time to ourselves, to meditate."

The Křehký Biedermeier collection presents new pieces, designed exclusively for the Křehký gallery as limited editions this year. The designers include Maxim Velčovský, Michaela Tomišková, Gabriel Vach, Hana Zárubová, and Nasstasia Aleinikava.

Why Biedermeier as a theme for the new collection?
“In our opinion, Biedermeier stimulates festive emotions in everyday life, adds another dimension to experiences and transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. It makes us devote time to ourselves, to meditate,” explain Křehký curators Jana Zielinski and Jiří Macek. “When creating new pieces for our collection, we wanted new objects to evoke such emotions. The collection took a long time to develop. We are happy that it has won such acclaim.”
