In 2008 the Imperial Karlovy Vary company continued with the successful project of the exclusive Kala spa cup, whose design and functional innovation attracted both experts and general public, and carried on with the creative cooperation with the young generation of Czech designers and the Czechdesign.cz civic association. The results of this interesting and beneficial cooperation are presented to the public under the patronage of the President of the Karlovy Vary Region, JUDr. Josef Pavel.
“I see the Imperial Design Symposium as a truly exceptional deed, because there is not sufficient conceptual support of significant clients in Bohemia that would give talented designers the chance to create freely. The client had to take a risk, didn't know the result in advance, didn’t know whether and under what circumstances the ideas will be useful. This event has helped designers improve their professional experience, especially in transferring an artistic idea into a real product. The results of this unique cooperation bring the combination of high-quality fine art and use value to Czech spa industry.”
