Short Description

Souvenir and gift coll. dedicated to the creative spirit of Jože Ple?nik, designer and architect.

Detailed Description

I’m a souvenir designer. In line with the changing times, the world around us, and the general perception of tourists, travel and tourism, my memoirs have changed considerably. I stopped showing cities and buildings and focused more on their creators. On the authors, on intimate impressions. My focus is no longer on the material heritage, on certain works as they exist in space, but on the creator, designer, architect, and the time before the [realization?]. So I decided to pay homage to Jože Ple?nik as an artist. To his creative genius. As he worked in central Europe I uded motifs from his drawings combined eith urban colours of the cities he worked in. All items are made in local printing and sawing offices, exqusite quality and susteinability..More: https://www.plecnik.shop/
