We are Michaela and Jakub, designers and storytellers in Bohemian glass. Our work is based on contemporary design combined with a mastery of production and a healthy respect for old Central European craft and traditions. We design, produce and sell our collections of lights and decorative glass products. We produce unique light fixtures made from a combination of mouth-blown glass and handcrafted brass. Our glamorous chandeliers light up space with a playful yet elegant appearance.
A significant component of our work is blowing glass into a colour gradient. The wide range of fresh gradient colours is a distinctive feature of the Bandaska vase from our new collection. It draws inspiration from traditional milk containers, well-known in Czech village households, and their elegant lines are now coming into modern homes in the form of our glass vases and lights. In addition to our normal production, we love to devise bespoke luminous objects for interiors. They arise from experimenting with unconventional materials and unusual combinations.
Along with our own work, we like to be part of special collaborations and exhibitions. We have collaborated with renowned galleries and institutions, and curated and exhibited projects in Milano, London, Frankfurt, Istanbul and a few other cities around the world. All of our creations are manufactured with care in Czech workshops using unique methods, including hand-blowing, snapping, cutting, grinding, firing, engraving and glass painting. We founded DECHEM studio in Prague in 2012 as partners in both work and life after years of studying glass craft and design, and we have grown it into a renowned and award-winning design studio.
