And Why Not
“And Why Not!”
In an emotionally intense sculptural form, And Why Not resembles a ﬂash. It’s an evolution of Roubíček´s core designs based on dynamic abstraction. Light glides on large smoothly polished surfaces and, while absorbed by the volume of glass, creates a unique atmosphere.
René Roubíček (born 1922) is a Czech glass icon. Glass art as an independent art discipline was actually born in Czechoslovakia and it was first introduced to the world by Mr. Roubíček, over half a century ago. His spatial dimensional abstract compositions combining metal and glass caused a sensation at the 1958 Expo in Brussels Roubíček subsequently won the Grand Prix Expo award. His work is represented in many major galleries worldwide.
