Galerie Kubista was opened at the end of 2002 in the exclusive location of the House at the Black Madonna in the historical center of Prague. It is the only specialist shop of it's kind in Prague, Czech Republic and has quickly become a favourite with residents as well as international clients.
Visitors to the Museum of Czech Cubism or the beautifully restored Grand Café Orient in the upper floors of the House at the Black Madonna, appreciate that our exclusive shop is the only place in Prague where they can buy originals and unique replicas of classic Czech design, particularly rare cubist and art deco objects.
Recently, as we approached the fifth anniversary our opening, step by step Galerie Kubista has gone through some changes on the way to realizing a new concept in design shops, based on a few key principles.
The main idea, inspired by several years of experience, is to create a more intimate and welcoming space for visitors to the museum where they can relax and browse through a collection of the works of reknowned Czech designers and artists such as Bohumil Kubista, Alois Wachsmann, Otto Gutfreund, Vaclav Spala and others.
In Galerie Kubista, we have aspired to establish a unique shop which is an organic part of a historic building while respecting the integrity of the space. Our gallery is distinct from typical commericial galleries and design shops, all more or less the same and abundant in Prague.
