Over the course of two autumn weeks (September 21 – October 4), the project ‘100Czech: The Story of Czech Design’ will bring a new element to the streets of Brussels. Iconic objects of Czech design history –TON chairs, cubist porcelain, as well as contemporary avant-garde pieces by the Qubus studio – will be on display in the windows of the charming neighborhood of Ixelles.
“You will find an extravagant porcelain boot in the window of the Agave flower-shop, stylish watch in a barber shop, and a bicycle in the popular Brussels joint El Turco,” says director of Czech Centre Brussels, Jitka Pánek Jurková. “This project thus literally opens a window into the history of Czech design to a broad audience.”
Everyone can discover the venues for himself with a map available at Brussels.czechcentres.cz/100czech, or during a guided tour with the curator Iva Knobloch on September 29 (16:00, in French) and September 30 (16:00, in English).
The exhibition was created by Czech Centers in cooperation with the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague. The event ‘100Czech: The Story of Czech Design’ is supported by CzechTourism and is a part of the official celebrations of the century of Czech statehood in Brussels.
