By emphasizing authenticity, questioning construction methods and reappraising the ability of materials to reveal character, Tadeáš Podracký proposes a new methodology of making – a reformulated approach to design that is based in emotive decisions, unpredictability and expression. When making this collection, Podracký used his “creation through destruction” technique, granting each piece a high level of unpredictability. To make his table, Podracký used recycled pieces of glass, and the table is topped with a vase made from shards of blue and alexandrite, joined together in the same way as the glass table. The glass shards were freely and organically glued together during the hand-crafting process. The vase remains purposely non-aestheticized, as Tadeáš Podracký wished
to show the material’s fragility and brokenness.
