Having worked in Paris and Prague, Czech designer Lucie Koldová has become a major name within lighting and furniture design sectors. Though highly refined, her transcendent practice is still influenced by this cultural duality. Designing in various mediums, the designer employs the power of tried and tested craftsmanship but isn’t afraid to explore new technologies. Developing objects for both contract and limited edition markets, Koldová has garnered numerous accolades, including a 2013 Grand Designer of the Year award in Czech Republic. Her minimal yet formally-expressive designs often contrast material properties and push the limits of proportion. For the past few years, the designer has worked closely with Czech boutique glassworks Brokis.
