Global Tools, 11th May - 14th July 2023, Side Gallery, Barcelona.

For the design of this stool, Tadeas imagined how its basic form could be expanded. "Change" is his subject of research and interest. A speculative concept on which he imagines everyday objects that become living bodies subject to growth or decay.
In this case, the element he worked with to arrive at the final design of the stool, was symmetry; it can be seen how one side projects onto the other. In an attempt to make his work as similar as possible to natural formations or processes, he makes all the objects by hand, working to achieve the maximum perfection in the artisanal process, but without reaching the ultimate or absolute symmetry, as in this way, the design becomes alive.

Designer image

Tadeas Podracky (b. 1989, Czech Republic) is an experimental designer who seeks authenticity in our immediate surroundings. Through material research, questioning craft heritage, and a hands-on approach, Podracky proposes a new methodology. He uses a reformulated approach to design, based on exploring expression, destruction, and accepting individuality.

Whether it is an object or space, he is always looking for a way to break down the established principles of "good" design to bring new possibilities and emphasize the multi-layered identities of the contemporary individual.

Tadeas Podracky went through the design and fine art academic training. He received an MA at the Academy of Art Architecture and Design in Prague; completed study internships in the Fine Art studio at the School of Visual Arts (New York) and in the Monumental Sculpture studio at the Academy of Fine Arts (Prague). After independent practice, he completed an MA in Contextual Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven.

His work won the AD design award and CGD award and has been internationally exhibited, notably Design Miami Basel, FOG San Francisco, Maison et Objet Paris, Mudac museum Lausanne, Designblok Prague, Salone del Mobile Milano, London Design Festival, Dutch Design Week. Podracky was invited as a guest designer to several design residencies, Design Biennial (Venice), Fellowship in Creative Glass Center of America at WheatonArts (USA), and Yuhang Rong Design Library (China).
