Design is Karlín
Karlín is a place that was discovered by many young gifted artists, designers and architects at the beginning of the new millennium. It is also thanks to them that Karlín has an unmistakable atmosphere. Karlín has become the home of interesting local brands and newly emerging brands, but also the famous Vitra, whose iconic design sets the trend and pace of interior architecture from the mid 20th century to the present. A new studio or art workshop is opened in Karlín every month, discover Karlín with us!
Vitra is synonymous with interior design of the 20th and 21st centuries. Visit the Vitra Showroom Praha, get yourself seated ... perhaps in the eternal classic Eames Lounge Chair, which you will find in the MoMA gallery in New York and also ordained the home of, for instance, Helmut Newton.

SegraSegra was established as a streetwear brand with original prints. After the younger of the sisters, Eliška, started riding her bicycle around Prague all-year-round, the brand profiled as brand wear for cyclists in the city that eases bicycle riding and also looks like city wear. Today the SegraSegra brand is intended not only for city cyclists, but for all nomads, who travel through life and need functional and original wear with clean lines. The unique feature of this Czech brand is that it also uses recycled bicycle tubes as an excellent and economical replacement for leather accessories.
