Generally speaking, experimentation is the basis for all my work. I like to combine the idiosyncratic. I like to join history with the future. The goal is not just the product itself, but also the entire process which leads up to it.

Quick Bio

Libor Sošťák is a product designer born in the Czech Republic. While studying design at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, he managed to gain product design experience in Utrecht, Netherlands where he studied conceptual design. He has exhibited at many Czech and international exhibitions, such as Designblok, Czech Grand Design Awards, Maison-Objet, Milan Design Week or Vienna Design Week. Libor is always interested in current trends and new technologies in product and interior design, while the inspiration for his chandeliers and lighting objects usually comes from tried and tested interior design concepts. However, he prefers to work on contemporary projects where he can craft a simple concept or story to accompany his glass installation. That said, he always respects the charm of traditional Czech hand-blowing techniques and works with both hand-blown glass and cut crystal. By using cutting-edge engineering and technology, his passion for contemporary production processes imbues even traditional products with a young, fresh form.
