A brand new concept store, designed by architect Martin Prokš, is being opened by the Czechdesign at Myslíkova 5, just a few steps from the center and existing store on Vojtěšská.

It will open to the public with an event on Wednesday, June 17.

Since 2003, the Czechdesign organization has become an epicenter for Czech design.

From the initial enthusiasm of design students, a professional organization emerged, which has several activities. It operates the most widely read local design portal, helps companies and institutions with design competitions and, through a stone shop and e-shop, gives designers the opportunity to sell their products.

Czech design will now reach the eyes of more passers-by and tourists. The opening hours have also been extended to Monday–Friday 11–19, Saturday–Sunday 10–18.

The area around Mánes has revived in recent years and is becoming an attractive zone for small businesses. Papelote, ArtMap, The Real Meat Society, Show the Room, and Soap are all located here, as is the recently opened Artic Bakehouse.
