Monotropa

Established in Prague in 2021, Monotropa is a brand design studio that embodies genuine craftsmanship with a fresh perspective. Its founder, Klara Janypkova, is driven by the stories of places, techniques, and a deep respect for traditional crafts. Instead of chasing trends, Monotropa carves its own niche, weaving together natural and reused materials into designs that resonate simplicity and authenticity. A notable collaboration with glassmaker Tomas Kucera or the designer Annamaria Semancova showcased the brand’s dedication to interdisciplinary projects. The brand’s essence stems from the Monotropa Uniflora, a unique wildflower, symbolizing the art of drawing from the world’s endless imagery to nurture creativity. With each design, Monotropa aspires for a mindful and timeless lifestyle.

TORSO Side Table

A simple cylindrical shape transformed by an external power is rotating and evolving into the TORSO Side Table. The atemporal motive celebrates the phenomenon of the human body and when translated into the glass, it creates the fantastic play of the reflections of the twisted masses. The low table can serve as a full-blown table or a remarkable interior artwork.

AVALANCHE Pendant Light

The AVALANCHE Pendant Light is a masterful blend of form and function. Anchored by a brushed brass tube with an internal LED stripe, it features various glass shades, beautifully capturing the amorphous nature of glass in its semi-liquid state. The result is a luminary that evokes the mesmerizing dance of a glass lava avalanche, illuminating spaces with both light and artistry.
