Loom Mum No UV! was commissioned by curators Jana Zielinski & Jiří Macek for `Manifesto´, an exhibition that took place at the Colloredo-Mansfeld Palace during the 20th Anniversary of Designblok in Prague. The brief was to develop a project that showed our vision as a designers.
Czech Republic has an extensive and renowned glass industry so I decided to study the properties of this material, concentrating on the technical attributes rather than the commonly explored ornamental qualities. Look Mum No UV! consists on a new system that join glass panels through metal buckles and leather straps. No glue or other adhesive is used. The result is a construction vocabulary that explore glass joinery in an unorthodox manner. The outcome are a shelf bookcase and a coffee table. Unique pieces.
