Bořek Šípek -
Monograph dedicated to Bořek Šípek, whose design is embedded with a sharp mysticism which challenges the rationality of Western European design.
“The things I make aren't design objects. I've never been concerned with industrial design, because I'm not interested into it. I prefer to design something for people than to try to put something into a nice wrapping.”
B. Šípek
