Amen – Church Chairs with Crucifix by Maxim Velcovsky


Design Therapy says:

Czech designer Maxim Velcovsky working with Jakub Berdych from Qubus Studio redesigned the interior of St. Bartholomew’s Church in Eastern Bohemia using customized Vernor Panton chairs with a perforated cross in the back. I’m intrigued. Perhaps this is what Mies van der Rohe was referring to when he said” God is in the details….”

Maxim Velcovsky is one of the Czech Republic’s leading young artists. Most of his work is in porcelain and involves ‘reimagining’ everyday objects; among his best known pieces are a vase in the shape of a Wellington boot and a porcelain version of a typical water-cooler paper cup. He is also known for a huge fibreglass crucifix, which stands in a Protestant church in Hradec Kralove. I spoke to Maxim Velcovksy at an exhibition of his at Prague’s Galerie Kritiku, and began by asking him to explain the thinking behind his work.
