Cubist lamp

Architect: Emil Králíček

Year of completion: 1913

A successful example of the fusion of geometric Art Nouveau and Cubism is the building of Adamova Pharmacy on Wenceslas Square, in which architect Emil Králíček was involved. In close proximity to this building, there is a purely Cubist work by the same architect. The construction company Matěj Blecha, for which Králíček was working at the time, was tasked by Prague to enhance the adjacent area of the pharmacy, leading the architect to create a unique Cubist work made of artificial stone, metal, and glass. This work is a Cubist lamp, which is a global rarity. The lamp column is adorned with smooth and grooved triangles, creating a sense of plasticity. The sharp edges also characterize the lantern itself.
