The Studio of Glass will represent the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (UMPRUM), at the London Design Fair 2018
Colour and transparency in relation to glass is the central theme around the exhibition Colours of Transparency from the Studio of Glass led by professor Rony Plesl. It is as much a celebration of Plesl's tenth year as the head of the Glass studio, as well as a demonstration of how the studio has grown and in what direction it is heading.
After its premiere at the London Design Fair, the exhibition will be moved to Prague and the extended collection will be featured in the HYB4 Gallery at Campus Hybernská. In addition to the exhibition, The Studio of Glass also prepared a comprehensive catalogue, introducing themselves and the actual Colours of Transparency project.
