Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague
Newly opened!
A study depository of 19th and 20th century furniture from the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague


A visit has to be arranged by appointment with the chateau administration

Entrance fee)
full CZK 30
reduced CZK 15

In mid September, the first part of a study depository of furniture design from the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague opened within the Days of European Heritage in the chateau in Kamenice nad Lipou, situated at the south-west corner of Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. After extensive reconstruction the chateau has been used for several years for exhibition and depository purposes, solving the inadequate capacity of museum depository. In addition to the Museum of Decorative Arts it is used by the Municipal Museum in Kamenice nad Lipou for a regional exhibition. The municipality of Kamenice nad Lipou takes care of the chateau park with a memorable linden tree; other premises host seasonal exhibitions and other cultural activities; there is a café with a summer terrace.

The first floor of the Eastern wing will gradually give access to the public to seven halls featuring 19th and 20th century furniture. This more or less chronological display, whose two halls opened on 15 September, is preceded in the connecting corridor by an “educational trail” of furniture design from its beginnings in the early 19th century. Eleven panels with text and photographs provide basic information on individual styles, significant foreign and domestic architects and designers and their realizations beginning from Biedermeier to the end of the 20th century. The texts are also available in English. Selected representative furniture has been installed on several stages along the panels throughout the entire corridor.

The purpose of this exhibition is to document key moments of inception and development of furniture design related to the transition from the individual handcrafted pieces to mass mechanical production during the 19th century: the influence of new technologies and materials to furniture design; the modern way of life impacting the typological construction of furniture; the enchantment by the plastics and subsequently their criticism; the role of individuals and specificity of national furniture schools in view of the new look of furniture design or, on the contrary, leveling the differences in the international style. We can find here the latest craze of Postmodernism as well as periodical comebacks of Functionalism, the dominance of the rational function as well as furniture conceived of as a work of art. The exhibition features icons of the world design, although often merely in replicas, as well as works by the youngest generation of Czech designers. This collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts, which is presented in this way to the public for the first time, is a result of a long-term collection activity of curators of the Museum of Decorative Arts, in particular Olga Herbenová, Milena Lamarová, Alena Adlerová and Věra Vokáčová, continued in the 1990s by Daniela Karasová.

The author of the scenario, selection of exhibited items and accompanying texts is Daniela Karasová; architectural layout has been designed by Karel Lapka; graphic design has been created by Jiří Sušanka.
