Jiri Krejcirik is a multidisciplinary designer based in Prague. His practice embraces a broad spectrum of disciplines and methods – it transcends the barriers between art and design, from product design through furniture, lighting, glass, interior and spatial design. Whether designing for a client or developing his own self–initiated projects or gallery objects, he always apply the same thorough attention to context, process and detail. As a result, his entire portfolio is characterised by a coherent visual language threading the historical and the cultural through a contemporary lens – with an unexpected edge. Embracing a tradition of craftsmanship, each product is meticulously hand-crafted locally, in the Czech Republic.
// Kalokagathos Table
The presented coffee tables are part of the ECLECTICISM collection, in which the designer pursues the relation between history and the present. Every piece from the collection is loosely inspired by a particular style or a movement from the past, and simultaneously, refers to a singular personality closely linked with the given era. The Kalokagathos coffee table is freely inspired by the aesthetics of Ancient Greece. Devoted to ancient Greek architect Iktinos.
