Crystalline box

krystal-600x600 - 1 - 1

No other object captures the spirit of Janák’s early cubist works better than this crystal-inspired box. Probably produced as a one-off, the box is a complex composition of angles, sharp points and folded planes. The thin black lines complete the dynamic sculpture and distract from its basic function as a box.

Reproduction of the original held by the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague.

Material: earthenware
