David Kounovsky is an emerging promising Chech artist. David was born in Prague in 1983.
In 2011 he moved to Milan, where he worked in tourism and fashion industries, as well as an interior designer.
His perfectly balanced sculptural compositions recall tendencies of the Avant-garde of the beginning of the 20th cebtury, while being absolutely unique and contemporary.
David works in resin and bronze. He pushes the boundaries of these materials, by utilising stainless steel frame, which helps him to play with the form and to achieve visibly fragile and very thin conjunctions.
David currently lives and works in Prague.
The philosophy of the famous furniture brand Rubelli refers to the path of iconic Italian design but with totally contemporary flavour.
The Rubelli historical archive, housed in Ca’ Pisani Rubelli, is a collection of over 6000 textile records which can be dated from the end of the fifteenth century to the first half of the twentieth century. The collection was begun in the second half of the nineteenth century, as the company was being set up and at a time when Venice was undergoing a cultural and economic recovery aimed at reviving traditional crafts, fully in line with the eclectic and revivalist trend in Europe.
For more than one hundred years the collection expanded considerably with the addition of important textile documentation and includes today not only European fabrics but also specimens from the East, Africa and the Americas. The collection also carefully conserves examples from original and historic Rubelli production, including the velvet made for the royal family in the early twentieth century and a number of fabrics produced through a creative partnership with famous artists, architects and designers such as Vittorio Zecchin, Guido Cadorin, Giò Ponti and Alfredo Carnelutti.
The tradition of Giorgetti goes back to more than 100 years ago when it started its activity in Brianza and it still forges ahead with innovation, conserving the patrimony of its experience in cabinet making.
The uniqueness of Giorgetti lies in its capacity to make quality and innovation parts of its life.
A Giorgetti ambient never appears as an aseptic space, devoid of personality, on the contrary it transpires elegance, sobriety and decisiveness. Its furnishing style can be immediately identified and defined as ‘the Giorgetti style’, unique and original, characterised at the source by its atypical uniqueness. These values materialise into products that dismiss the ordinary to create exclusive and versatile solutions, in the respect of a refined and unmistakable character that seduces by the beauty of its contrasts. Thanks to the passion for detail, high intrinsic quality in terms of technology and materials, but also the quality of the design that makes every element unique of its kind, pieces free from formal conventions can be created that exist happily side by side anywhere, cancelling cultural and temporal distances.
The products manufactured by Giorgetti are a prime example of Made and Manufactured in Italy. Starting from design, creativity and style, up to the actual production, the entire production process is entirely made in Italy by highly qualified personnel having great skills in the furniture sector. Giorgetti products are functional and made of long-lasting quality materials and are made with eco-friendly efficient technologies.
The Made in Italy artisan production surpasses the logic of the standard product and guarantees a high level of product customization.
