OÁZA COLLECTION
Stand K05 – Hall T5
The oasis is an external place of refuge and repose. Designers Klára Šumová and Dirk Wright have internalised this concept with Oáza, a collection of furniture and interior accessories creating calm within the home. Maple, marble, aluminium and other natural materials are combined with special surface treatments such as galvanising and anodising, creating unexpected harmony and contemplative results. The Oáza collection is accompanied by a set of hand-cut glass lights, the ‘Grid’ collection, newly designed and developed for Preciosa chandelier manufacturers.
This event is kindly supported by the Embassy of the Czech Republic in the UK. More...
