On the occasion of its jubilee, the Designblok festival prepares a special exhibition, Designblok Cosmos, with the support of the PPF Foundation. A traveling exhibit, a display case of contemporary Czech design, and a materialized manifesto of shared values. The traveling gallery containing ten original glass works by ten top designers will premiere in front of the Ball Game Hall of Prague Castle (Míčovna Pražského hradu) in the Royal Garden during this year's Designblok, and its first stop abroad will be Milano Design Week in April 2024.
The main exhibition of the 25th Designblok, with the subtitle Intergalactic Beauty of Czech Design, is a look into the inner universe of ten top Czech designers presented via their unique works conceived as their personal manifesto. The connecting link is glass, a material so traditional for our country, and the spectacular installation in the form of an endless cosmic pilgrimage for which the works were created. The exhibition is a celebration of 25 years of the Prague International Festival Designblok and the journey that Czech design and Czech society have taken together over the last quarter of a century.
