What's going on...
NEO3 | Světlana Kožhenová
The concept of a project is based on postmodern attitude towards contemporary sustainable design. The set of "Neokubista" and "Neorondokubista" lights resembles art styles as art nouveau, Czech cubism or rondocubism (architecture style unique for Bohemia). Light lampshades are made of recycled antenna´s PCB, which is reasonable of their great heat resistance, high strength and appropriate translucency. Once the unique PCBs are assembled together, unexpected and functional art artifact is born.

TOXIQUE and Studio NajbrtThis season the look of the band, Toxique, is getting a dramatic makeover. Considering its youth, the band certainly doesn't need a face-lift, but have gained an added dimension thanks to their cooperation with Studio Najbrt. The studio not only redesigned their existing Toxique "brand", but also created witty accessories to go along with it (t-shirts, badges, vinyl records, figurines, etc.).
Inspired by this collaboration, new objects followed in Studio Najbrt's existing product line Moje Moje. They'll cheer up and amuse fans of the brand and design as well, once again proving that the best combined with the freshest works, don't you think?
Look, listen, touch! Come see for yourself.
