 Authors: Pavel Janák,  Vlastislav Hofman
 Epochas: Czech Cubism
 

No other object captures the spirit of Janák’s early cubist works better than this crystal-inspired box. Probably produced as a one-off, the box is a complex composition of angles, sharp points and folded planes. The thin black lines complete the dynamic sculpture and distract from its basic function as a box.

“… wedges, arrows, spikes, stakes, knives and levers that overpower matter are all angled planes.” (P. Janák) The author is one of the creators of Czech Cubism – a movement that was internationally unique in applying the ideas of French Cubist art to architecture and the applied arts. Janák viewed the angled plane as a means of dominating, artistically transforming and animating lifeless matter; a disruption of calm and a rational balance of the horizontal and vertical.
