DOX by Qubus - Designshop DOX
More than one year the public can see domestic and international contemporary art in old-fashioned industry zone in Prague - in DOX - Centre for Contemporary Art. Inside the complex of sensitively refurbished buildings are many exhibition spaces and interspaces. In one of them are situated Designshop - DOX by Qubus.
The Qubus Studio was founded in 2002 in Prague, Czech Republic. Thirteen years after the fall of Communism, Jakub Berdych and Maxim Velčovský decided to establish a multidisciplinary platform for experimenting – in the new context – with traditional Czech materials such as porcelain or glass. During the five years of its existence, Qubus has produced dozens of shapes and designs respected both in the Czech Republic and abroad. The product portfolio of the studio, which in 2004 also branched into interior and graphic design, ranges from exclusive tailor-made creations for private gallery owners to projects for multinationals. The works of the Qubus team draw on the studio’s unique Eastern experience. On a path from Communism to Consumerism, the studio offers original cocktails blending a variety of forms in new contexts, whether created by traditional techniques or latest technologies.
Studio Qubus focuses on design, production, and the realization of conceptual design for interiors and architecture.
In 2006, Qubus Studio received award the Distributor of the Year, Czech Grand Design, and the next year, Maxim Velčovský won the Designer of the Year (Czech Grand Design 2007). This year The Academy of Czech design honored DOX by Qubus with the prize CGD as a Distributor of the year 2008 again.
