100Czech: The Story of Czech Design

Icons of Czech design will be on display in the windows of the Brussels Ixelles/Elsene neighborhood in the course of two autumn weeks – from September 21 to October 4. The cafés, barber shops, flower shops and restaurants of Ixelles/Elsene will provide the passers-by with the opportunity to spot a cubist chair, vases made of Bohemia crystal, popular toys from the 1960s as well as the 21st century Czech avant-garde porcelain. The exhibition ‘100Czech: The Story of Czech Design’ thus opens a window to the century of Czech design to a broad Brussels audience.

A map with all the venues as well as an on-line catalogue of all the items in French and English will be available.

Two free guided tours around Ixelles with the design historian Ivan Knobloch will be held – in French on Saturday September 29, 16:00, and in English on Sunday September 30, 16:00. The meeting point will be identified in the course of September. Entry is free, registrations needed at ccbrussels@czech.cz.

The window installations were conceived by Romana Drdová, a finalist of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award for artists under 35. The exhibition ‘100Czech: The Story of Czech Design’ is a joint project of Czech Centre Brussels and CzechTourism and is a part of the official celebrations of the centennial of Czech Statehood in Brussels.
