Designer | Vobouch


Softness meets roughness

Two young designers, Markéta Kalivodová and Richard Švejda, joined their forces (and amazing talents) to create VOBOUCH, a studio dedicated to combining porcelain with all kinds of curious materials. And when we say curious, we mean it – their creations are unexpected in every way.  

Who would’ve thought that mixing porcelain with concrete would result in a beautiful (warning: heavy!) designer vase? Or that three pieces of fine porcelain strapped with a leather belt could be so eye-catching? We certainly wouldn’t expect any of that. 

It is clear the designing duo doesn’t hold back – and the boldness pays off! Their BETON (Czech for ‘concrete’) collection was nominated for the Czech Grand Design Award and won the Kia Czech Design Week Award in 2015. Kudos!
