A duo of designers Martina Kleinová and Miroslav Nachlinger found the Studio Revír in 2015. Now, in their first authorial exhibition, they present furniture and individual ceramic pieces in an installation full of mirrors and reflections.
Studio Revír searches for inspiration above all in nature. However reminiscent of fauna and flora morphology, the Doe chair, the mirror sets Planets or the Foxcoat rack still possess the air of modernity and lushness. All designs put emphasis on the selection of material, always of natural origin, high quality and durability. Traditional craft techniques, which Miroslav Nachlinger mastered from his family with a hundred-year wood-carving history, play a key role in processing the solid wood, glass or metal. We can best admire the ability of Studio Revír to merge classical handcraft with contemporary trends in design on the Planets series, compelling in their stress of functionality and ingenious detail.
The motif of a game of reflection and its variety structures the authorial exhibition installation Studio Revír devised for Kvalitář. The choice is not devoid of purpose. In the freestanding mirrors we can view the applied design in different angles, examine it from every possible perspective and understand, what makes it exceptional. After public presentations of the studio at Designblok, the Northmodern fair in Copenhagen and the exhibition MeeD, design without borders in Budapest, the inclusion of mirrors has become a signature of the two young designers.
