Markéta Kratochvílová, Tadeáš Podracký
Collection of 4 floor lamps
Material- glass, steel, gold-plated steel, polyurethane
Each of lamp from Skywalkers collection has own identity, sophisticated form, specific surface shape and color which evoke in us the dream of stepping into the outer reaches of the Earth's atmosphere. Our light objects illustrate different parts of space vehicles used in fascinating space exploration. The materials of lamps, reflective, mirroring gold-plated steel and translucent glass create lighting style based on breath taking vision of surviving out of our home planet.
Stephen Hawking: "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to the stars."
