HasModern presents a distinctive selection of furniture design from the first half of the 20th century. The main focus of interest is the 1920s and 1930s, especially Czechoslovak production and the production of neighbouring countries. A more distant essence in time and place is the collection of original furniture from the 1950s USA and the contemporary production of the German manufacturer Müller Möbelfabrikation.
Our offer includes restored furniture pieces, originals in their original condition and so-called "New Originals" - reproductions of period furniture, lamps and applied art from the Cubist, Art Deco, Functionalist and other periods.
HasModern sees the charm in traditional craftsmanship and the use of materials of the highest quality. Thanks to its broad supplier base, HasModern is able to supply bespoke interior units. We work with craftsmen for whom their work is their life's work and our concepts are challenges for them. One aspect of our business is to keep skilled people at their desks, where they strive every day to create unique pieces of furniture for our clientele. The sustainability of tradition and craftsmanship is an integral part of our vibrant culture.
We restore select original pieces of furniture and lighting with attention to detail and an eye for material and form. In our custom production and restoration workshops, we work with the highest quality materials and draw on our years of experience. Traditionally used materials are leather, velvet, mohair and others.
The production is dominated by wooden lacquered surfaces, both veneered and made of solid oak, walnut ash or elm. At the same time, the woods are intertwined with brass, nickel, chrome, copper, porcelain or glass.Based on the client's taste, we create unique custom pieces of furniture and complete interior solutions.
What you can dream up, we make happen.
Coincidentally, my first job was working in one of the first private post-revolutionary galleries with contemporary art - the Jiří Švestka Gallery. Through this life experience in an artistic, cultural environment, I developed a relationship and the need to be close to human creativity. Gradually, observations and attempts to understand the fine arts became necessary.
Another professional part of my life story took place in the New Hall and Behemoth Gallery. I gained experience in writing grants to support the implementation of exhibition projects, got to know the production side of the issue and, last but not least, I had the opportunity to get to know the art scene very closely. A personal meeting with artists was the biggest benefit for me, I could get deeper, closer to the source of creativity in the perception of their work.
Next to the Behemot Gallery was the first Konsepti store in Prague. I have always wondered with interest why a transparent plastic chair attracts more attention from visitors than contemporary Czech art. I probably don't know the exact answer yet, but I have accepted the fact that design is for a wider audience than fine art and I think it's natural.
On the contrary, by a quirk of fate I became active in the field of design, but not contemporary, rather, as we often say, on the borderline between antiques and junk. I got into design through a year-long stint in the theatre company of the Forman Brothers Theatre. After I finished working with the company, I was approached by one of the associates of the Forman Brothers to join a very interesting company that was renovating and also starting to produce replicas of furniture from the first half of the 20th century.
For the first time in my life, I stood in the middle of a furniture installation and had no idea what I was looking at. The individual pieces of furniture attracted me to such an extent that I wanted to learn all about their origin, production and the possibilities of working with them today and how to implement them in a contemporary interior design.
I have been active in the furniture industry for 20 years. When you see a restored piece come to life, it's a really refreshing feeling and motivation to keep working. We still enjoy taking advantage of the unique Czech environment, where even today almost everything can be individually produced. This is not a standard situation anywhere else in the world. Czechs should be aware of this and we should guard the craft in our country as a national treasure. This is what we are trying to do at HasModern, preserve human creativity, joy and creativity.
