Designed by Maxim Velčovský, this porcelain candle holder is more than a distinctive piece of home decor. In line with the studio's reputation for quirkiness, it is designed after the Trabant car-iconic socialist car, which was popular in East Germany. The Trabant car became a symbol of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Inspired by historical moments, Maxim created this ironic piece, which serves as a memento of the past we left behind and a candleholder. We guarantee it will make for a unique addition to your home decor collection.

Qubus

Design with a punchline

Qubus Design Studio was started in 2002 by (now infamous duo) Jakub Berdych and Maxim Velčovský. Their ironic pieces, which often criticized consumerism and made fun of pop-culture, had become a synonym for the young Czech design and a staple of shops and galleries all around the world.  

If you struggle to remember seeing some of their work, let us remind you of a porcelain version of the cheap paper sausage trays, porcelain Wellingtons, cups that look like the bottom of a PET Coke bottle or a bowl in the shape of the Czech Republic. Familiar, right? 

In 2011, Maxim Velčovský left to work on other projects, but the Qubus brand remained one of the market’s leaders. Currently, the studio focuses mainly on interior design and architectural projects, as well as on representing Czech design abroad.
