A gentle touch of cement
Vases from Prasklo are a proof that unlikely combinations make for the best pairings. Made of glass and concrete – yes, we are talking cement here – these vases are somehow both elegant and raw. As if that wasn’t unusual enough, all the glass is recycled from old perfume flacons, alcohol bottles or light fixtures.
The mastermind behind Prasklo (and the used-glass-collector-in-chief) is Petra Švejdarová, a starting artist from Prague. She says she never really thought about starting her own brand – she just kept turning her ideas into real-life designs and then the rest happened. Prasklo has been gaining acclaim since its beginning in 2015 and got nominated for the Best Product Award at Prague Design Week in 2019.
