For Stockholm Design Week 2016, Platina has in cooperation with the Czech Centre in Stockholm invited ZORYA, the design duo Daniel Pošta & Zdeněk Vacek. At this special event, their successful collection “Virus” will be presented.
The thought behind the Virus collection, they say, begins with torn-off ropes from ships and the passage of time. Time is a creator if it is given the chance, and the salt from the sea can change ropes beyond recognition. Together in the laboratory, Daniel Pošta and Zdeněk Vacek have succeeded to let crystals replicate like viruses on ropes and this transformation has resulted in magic jewellery.
Both Daniel Pošta and Zdeněk Vacek work in broader arts and design fields. In addition to jewellery, they also design furniture and make objects which can be seen as fine art.
Daniel Pošta studied architecture and design in the studio of Jiří Pelcl at the Prague Academy of Art, Architecture and Design. The essential experience for him was the research fellowship in the studio of Makkink & Bey in the Netherlands.
Zdeněk Vacek is a trained goldsmith and jeweller and he transforms metal into organic shapes. By working with luxurious antique jewellery he simultaneously developed his own independent career and presented his first jewellery collection at Prague´s Designblok in 2005 where it earned him the Talent of the Year award. At this time, his cooperation with Daniel Pošta started.
Several years of cooperation and presentations in Europe, America and Asia resulted in the decision to establish the ZORYA brand in 2011. In the same year, Vacek and Pošta received the prestigious Czech Grand Design award.
