Anna Jožová, a student of the Glass Studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, nominated for the Czech Grand Design 2020 award, and Vlastimil Šenkýř, the TALENTE2020 winner, joined forces to create a collection of KOMBO vases. KOMBO vases are the intersection of the experimental approaches of both authors and excel in modular morphology and the use of a mysterious ingredient, which the authors named Snake Mix. The connection between Anna Jožová and Vlastimil Šenkýř is the desire to research and shift the material and shape possibilities of glass. Mainly thanks to experiments with various additives that they add to the glass mass, their products acquire a distinctive character. In the new collection of Kombo vases, he develops techniques typical for his work - icing, the use of mica or metal oxides, and he also brings a completely new ingredient to his game with glass, called Snake Mix.

The morphology of the vases is based on the stylization and abstracting of the female and male figures, which complement each other, as is this pair of authors. The lower and upper parts of the vases have the same diameter, allowing for modularity. The individual vases can be combined and stacked on top of each other, creating totemic objects.

They further expanded the vases with atmospheric lamps and chandeliers. Both authors will enrich the space with their own author's work. Vlastimil will present the projects he conquered Talente 2020 in Munich, while Anna will present objects exhibited at the Venice Design Biennial 2021. The exhibition will be complemented by paintings by painter Petr Dejmek.

You can see the work of both authors at various design events such as Designblok, Czech Design Week, but also at foreign exhibitions such as Schmuck Münich, Joya Barcelona or Biennale Venezia. Their works are also exhibited in various museums and sales galleries.
