Collection TwentyOne

At a time when many companies are advancing with caution and favouring the saleable and the safe, Bořek Šípek continues to design china and glassware that overturn expectation and defy all precedent except for his own. [...] As a designer, Šípek inhabits some dark fairytale landscape of his own imagining. His pieces are ceremonial trappings imposed on the ordinary routines of everyday life. Andrée Putman

The vigour of hand-crafting informs all his pieces. [...] Bořek Šípek likes to combine precious materials with humble ones, working in metal, wood, marble, glass, iron, ceramics, brass and silk. He can forge metal, blow and etch glass, cast in bronze, upholster and do woodwork, setting up within each piece "a dialogue betweeen geometric and organic form". Arata Isozaki
