A platform for the promotion of Czech and Slovak designs
pro.story is a novelty, whose boundaries are determined by three Czechoslovak pillars and guest artists. A place where they create things for everyday use, notorious and reproduced so many times they are almost banal.
želé jewellery is a designer jewellery brand which is based on handmade production. Veronika Zelezníková, a Slovak designer, is behind the designs and manufacturing of the jewellery. She works with an unusual material – bismuth. This crystalline metal, which has been known to humankind since antiquity, takes on many different shades of the spectrum as the light refracts and can be shaped into incredible spatial objects. Another reason this mineral became the designer’s favourite is because it allows her to influence the final design as much as possible, always putting a piece of herself into it.
