(jiří macek) Jan Jaroš from Cohnstudio has designed one of the most interesting beverage sets from the Czech Republic during the last year. Presented by Cohnstudio at Designblok ’09, its name is Ufo and is a set for two. It may be clear why we have waited to present it until today.
The carafe and glasses create an inseparable trio. They are a statue, a joke, and an artful set for two that facilitates any conversation. It opens topics and engages people into a game. It is a laconic depiction of a situation in which one can easily find himself/herself when one runs out of words and fantasies. However, one can never get lost with Ufo. Enjoy New Year’s Eve.
For the Ufo beverage set, Cohnstudio has been nominated for the Designer of the Year Award at the 2009 Czech Grand Design Awards. The Academy of Design of the Czech Republic will announce the winners on March 6. The gala ceremony will be broadcast on CT2 on March 13.
