Clartés

Marriott Hotel, Prague

Welcoming guests as they arrive at Prague’s Marriot Hotel, these custom-made glass sculptures frame the grand stairway in the main foyer.  Inspired by the fusion of natural elements like climbing vines and the urban decay of barbed wire, the piece captures the freedom and destruction of our contemporary lives in light and glass.  Handcrafted by our artisans, these sculptures bring contemporary art to the forefront of Bohemian glass design.

 

Every single product we make is hand made in a glass factory and metal workshops located in the Czech Republic. This factory specializes in luxury glass manufacturing and processing was created in the early 1900's by Antonin Jilek and Frantisek Wetter, well known artisans in Europe for their know-how.

Generations of glassblowers have been working in the factory and together we discuss the production and talk about the development of new products.

More than a manufacturing workshop, we are all one big family who believe in our projects, our products and our vision of Clartés since the first days of the brand.
