The legend of Czech crystal manufacturing, the author of masterpieces, the inspiration for art and industry. It would be hard to define Frantisek Vízner differently.
At Maison & Objet, Paris, in Scenes d'Interieur, in Hall 7 Stand G72, Bomma will introduce a new and limited collection of vases and bowls, created according to the designs elaborated in the last year of author‘s life.
During the last year of his life, Frantisek Vízner painted. That’s how this unique collection of a dozen designs of drinking and decorative glass for the newly emerging glass factory Bohemia Machine was born.
In 2010, the newly established crystal manufacturer and designer Bomma introduced these designs as the author's first and very successful collection of drinking glass. Frantisek Vízner‘s daughter, Ida Víznerová, is artistically supervising the upcoming new limited collection of horizontal and vertical crystal vases and bowls according to author’s original designs, who would have turned 80 this year.
The limited collection is worked in two materials - glass and golden-brown amber – and decorated with a fine diamond-cut finish. There are only 50 pieces, with each piece numbered and accompanied by a certificate of originality. Bomma will also have an upgraded stand at the show.
Maison & Objet, Paris, which is scheduled to take place from January 22-26, will deliver more than 450 exciting brands. There are a number of changes to the show this edition, including an expanded Scenes d’Interieur and Design a Vivre.
