In 2009 and under the influence of Pavel Wriser, Verreum was established, its aim was to promote Czech Glassmakers’ craftsmanship in both the Czech Republic and abroad. Such a project has proven to be a successful gamble, as Verreum has been able to bring new life to the traditional techniques of silvered glass making whilst adapting to 21th Century trends and tendencies. This long ago forgotten technique of silvered glass making which involves the pouring of a solution of silver nitrate between two walls of blown glass originated in Bohemia and Moravia and later became prominent in England and the United States. Today, Verreum is one of the few companies in Europe still using this technique and has developed a formula which uses one of the purest silvers around truly setting them apart from the others. Among its designers, Verreum accounts for a number of meaningful names such as Michal Fronk and Jan Nmeek from the Olgoj Chorchoj studio, as well as Rony Plesl and Jirí Pelcl. verreum also works with international designers such as Arik Levy, Karim Rashid, Sebastian Bergne and Sebastian Hekner and Verreum’s very own art director, all of whom bring their own personal touch, talent and creativity making the Verreum trademark utterly original. The exclusivity of their product and knowledge allows them to create an innovative design-collection of extraordinary elegance as you can see for yourselves.
