Discover Cubism, a unique avant-garde style that emerged in Paris in the early 20th century. The movement was led by influential artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, but it was the presence of Czech artists in Paris that inspired the birth of Czech Cubism. The Mánes Art Association in Prague was a center for the movement from 1910 to the 1920s.
Czech Cubism wasn't limited to painting and sculpture. It influenced architecture, applied art design, and furniture, with designs promoted by the Prague Artěl cooperative group. Using geometric shapes such as squares, rectangles, triangles, prisms, cubes, and needles, combined with curves, Czech Cubism produced striking and original designs.
After World War I, the movement shifted to Rondo Cubism, a more complex combination of geometric shapes such as circles, ellipses, spheres, cylinders, and cones. This development drew criticism from traditional Cubism adherents, who labeled it "mannerism.
At HasModern, we're passionate about Cubism and its lasting influence. Replicating Cubist-style furniture and lamps is a dream job for our workshops, and we're always happy to take on the challenge.
