The Concept - Object - Meaning (K.O.V.) studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague wants to lead students towards a deeper understanding of the wide spectrum of art in space through an interdisciplinary approach to material, concept and form, in a close relationship to design, architecture and contemporary art. 


Students in the Concept - Object - Meaning (K.O.V.) programme from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague cultivate their intellectual skills and artistic feeling through experiments with different materials, paying particular attention to metals, and express their creative potential in visionary concepts. Function, technical qualities and originality applied in art crafts are phenomena influencing our perception of the world around us. The aim of this studio is to stimulate students' individual skills and creativity.  

During their studies, students attend a series of technical courses where they learn about the basic processes and technologies relevant to work with metals in order to be able to produce the designed products, from the initial study models and sketches to the final product.   

According to their abilities and interests, they can choose from a wide range of applications, from jewelry, items of everyday use and details applied in interior design or architecture, to fine art.

Programme Structure

  • The leaders of the studio require their students to study the worldwide events in their discipline and to learn about the works of important artists, designers and architects, using the internet, with a subsequent presentation of the information they have found and drawing a conclusion in the form of audiovisual or written essays.
  • Another important skill obtained by the students in the course of their studies is the public presentation of their studio works. The K.O.V. studio presents its works in exhibitions, design shows at home and abroad and in commercial galleries. In this way, students are confronted with the reaction of the expert public.
