For more than a decade, Jan Plechac and Henry Wielgus have been designing spaces for art gallerist and artist Richard Preisler. “In that time,” they say, “we’ve become friends and we know that having a place like this has been a long-time dream of his.” The place they are referring to is Dvojka, a small wine bar in Prague. “We wanted the interior to express his personality the way we see it.”
What they saw was an image of “a scruffy old iPhone,” which became the aesthetic guidepost. The team at Studio Jan Plechac & Henry Wielgus whitewashed everything: walls, ceilings, old workbenches and stools; they even spattered the new black floors with white paint. “It makes it look as if you’re in someone’s studio,” say the duo. “Or perhaps a vintage refrigerator shop.”
Either way, Plechac and Wielgus see it as a “a friendly and pleasant space in which people would feel relaxed even before drinking the first glass of wine.” To which we say: Na zdravi (Cheers)!
