Simple and poetic story / Bocci 14
René Roubíček (born 1922) is a Czech glass icon. Glass art as an independent art discipline was actually born in Czechoslovakia and it was first introduced to the world by Mr. Roubíček, over half a century ago. His spatial dimensional abstract compositions combining metal and glass caused a sensation at the 1958 Expo in Brussels Roubíček subsequently won the Grand Prix Expo award. His work is represented in many major galleries worldwide.
René Roubíček´s chandelier designed for Lasvit named by its author “And why not!” refers to his lifelong experimentation and searching compositions and forms incarnated in glass. The chandelier´s emotionally intense sculptural form resembles a flash and is an evolution of Roubíček´s core designs based on dynamic abstraction. Light gliding on large smoothly polished surfaces while absorbed by the mass of the glass creates a unique atmosphere.
The Miss Dior exhibition showcases the timeless, modern character of this fragrance. The exhibition traces a dialogue between Art and Dior, eternal ally to artists. Fifteen female artists have been invited to freely interpret the signature codes of Miss Dior.
