ABOUT

JANA POTIRON

*1986

Furniture and interior, site specific installations
Theoretical focus – psychology in design, material psychology

I am a designer who experiments with minimalist forms a seeks mutual overlaps of design and art in a practical as well as a theoretical level. My work includes works ranging from furniture elements influenced by emotions to site-specific installations in public or private spaces. I design with respect for the function of the objects, but primarily I work with associations, expressiveness and human interaction with the material world. Since 2016 I am a head of studio Furniture and Interior design on Faculty of art in Pilsen.

2014 – Artis doctor (ArtD.) in design: “ Application of art means of expression in product design”
