London-based design gallery Sigmar and Czech creative collective OKOLO present a showcase of original pieces from the emblematic Hotel Praha in Prague, an architectural symbol of late communist rule, which was demolished in 2014.
The exhibition presents the history and the architectural, design and art significance of this masterpiece of socialist hospitality, alongside selected furniture pieces that were created for the interiors of the hotel which survived the demolition.
Completed in 1981, the hotel was commissioned by the Communist party to host international events and important political delegations. The hotel was constructed for the Comintern and had an almost unlimited budget. Most of the elements were developed exclusively for this project, designed to represent the idealism of communist regime to foreign visitors.
Opening hours: Sat – Tues 10-6, Weds & Fri 10-8, Thurs 10–9
