The Second Skin day bed was created as a bachelor thesis at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Nowadays, the day bed is located in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague as a part of the collection of contemporary design.
The bachelor thesis deals with leather in terms of matter or surface and studies its forms. I use organic forms of natural leather in contrast to industrial metal. With an emphasis on leather craft, through pressing technology I create the leather relief of the sitting part of the chaise lounge, which is a functional element, as well as the dominant and decor of the whole product. Interior chaise lounge on a subtle metal construction with a pressed leather surface, inspired by modifications of our own skin and its ability to remember.
Construction and material
metal construction with pressed leather surface
molded parts filled with micropourous rubber EPDM T130

Glass collection based on the contrast of two materials – metal and glass. A series of three glass objects, a jar, a vase and a bowl that connect brass components in the center. They are polished and covered with protective varnish.

The inspiration for the final shape of the brass center was the aesthetics of technical components, heating and garden fittings and their clear geometric lines. Authentic aesthetics, based on the function of the component – nozzles, couplings and quick couplings connected to each other create the central jewel of the whole object.
Modular bathroom faucet
Water faucet and hanger connected in one. Bathroom faucet as a graphic line in the interior. You can hung on a towel, brush box or mirror. Thanks to the universal connecting elements of the construction, the faucet can be adjusted precisely to the specific bathroom with different tube lengths.
