And we are here to relay that story to the world and help clients make the right decision – after all, one should choose one’s home primarily with the heart.
In 2013, our company celebrated great success with the Art Rezidence U Divadla residential project, which was featured in the legendary daily newspaper The New York Times, thanks to interesting interiors and our marketing strategy, and won the Realty Project of 2013 in the Czech Republic. This project was of key importance in developing an identity for our company, focused on three carefully selected areas, the combination of which creates unique projects: selling homes in the centre of Prague – design – luxury. Exquisite design and ideas were also used in the Candy Flat residential project, for which we designed the entire interior.
We believe in direct communication, fairness, and goodness, and do not need to hide our faces from our customers – trust and professionalism are of utmost importance to us.
We also provide sustained support to various charitable organisations. This year, we wanted to embrace charity with greater enthusiasm and commitment, by including in it our Candy Flat design project, which is so close to our hearts. This is so important for us that we have even incorporated the connection of the project and charity in the name. The Candy Flat Design Project – Luxury supports charity will support the Pink Crocodile Kindergarten for children to whom fate has not been
Candy Flat story
Pink Crocodile is an international non-profit organisation whose main mission is to care for children who have hearing impairments and severe combined disabilities, especially those who are socially disadvantaged, excluded from society for various reasons, or living on the edge of poverty. Pink Crocodile primarily supports projects focused on physiotherapy, education, services, and aids designed for such children. The organisation also helps integrate children into regular society, striving in many ways to improve their lives and those of their families, as well as fighting for their rights.
Our special kindergarten and primary school on Havířovská Street 476 in Prague 9 is open to children with medium and severe combined disabilities. We strive to ensure that they have good-quality education, therapy, general development, and services, in a safe and pleasant family-like environment outside of their homes. We offer all-day stays with an extensive educational curriculum, therapy, play, art, music, and physical education. Meals throughout the day and a period of rest are included. The staff comprise experienced teachers, a music therapist, a physiotherapist, and assistants for the children as well as for the teachers.
We are trying to integrate the children and their families into regular society to the greatest extent possible, and to improve the quality of their lives. In our intensive integration programme, we organise a number of regular after-school classes and leisure-time activities together with healthy children from our school’s Day Care department, and with children from regular kindergartens and primary schools (Pink Crocodile Theatre, with plays and musicals; Pink Crocodile Band, for music classes and ensembles; Pink Crocodile Olympics, with various kinds of sports, such as yoga, trampoline, aquatherapy, running in special wheelchairs, and skiing; Pink Crocodile Art, for painting classes; and much more – we play, cook, and celebrate together, go on trips and organise summer day camps).
Baccarat is a French brand infused with a passion for working with crystal: it creates exclusive products out of glass, such as tableware, chandeliers, jewels, and interior decorations. Its first workshop was established in 1764, near the village of Baccarat, France. The brand can boast cooperation with one of the world’s most famous contemporary designers – its visionary is Phillipe Starck. He designed the black crystal Zenith chandelier for Baccarat, and two years later he presented the Darkside Collection, the only one of its kind in the world.
The brand owns two crystal museums, also designed by Phillipe Starck.
Baccarat has always created luxury products in cooperation with leading world artists. It pursues this philosophy to this day. For example, Marcel Wanders, Ellie Top, and Jaime Hayon have worked for the brand.
Czech customers can also enjoy Baccarat products. A shop in the Art Nouveau Municipal Building in Prague is the first to offer the products of this famous French glassworks company.
In its luxury boutique, with glass designed in the company’s in-house interior studio in Paris, you can admire the world’s best crystal, produced by Baccarat, with 24 percent lead, which ensures the best quality glass.
In the minimalist space, designers let the object themselves shine and speak for themselves. Crystal chandeliers, glass sets, as well as products made by designers Marcel Wanders and Philippe Starck point to the decorative style of the brand, which is so characteristic of it, and which dominates both traditional designs – such as the famous Harcourt glass – as well as contemporary interpretations by the above-mentioned design stars. Aside from glass light fixtures and accessories, you can also purchase crystal jewels designed by Stefano Poletti and Stéphanie Bascou. As a pioneer in its discipline, Baccarat has always set the current trends and created the classics of tomorrow.
Laurent-Perrier was the first of the large houses in Champagne to start producing non-vintage rosé champagne; today, their rosé is synonymous with rosé champagne, and a quality benchmark for others. The Laurent-Perrier winery was established in 1812. Today, it is one of the last, and largest independent producers of Champagne, and is acknowledged worldwide as one of the best and most prestigious producers of champagne. The vinery is owned by the Nonancourt family and is one of the few in Champagne to lie directly in the heart of the extensive Marne wineries – in the picturesque village of Tours-sur-Marne, at the crossroads of three leading sub-regions of Champagne: Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, and Côte des Blancs.
The art of the present chef de cave Michel Fauconnet and his predecessor, Alain Terrier, who is acclaimed as one of the greatest vintners in Champagne, appealed to the royal court of Britain, to which Laurent-Perrier is an official purveyor. This is evidenced by the crest of the Prince of Wales on every bottle of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Brut.
Le Bourgin, a company established by an eponymous native of Champagne in 1996, offers an exclusive collection of wines from France, Spain, as well as the new world, for gastronomic professionals, as well as people for whom wine is a passion and hobby. The portfolio of our vintners, built with care, a long-term vision, and French know-how, includes world-famous names such as Laurent-Perrier, William Fèvre, Bouchard Père et Fils, Henri Bourgeois, M. Chapoutier, Château Minuty, Dow’s port, Spanish Marquès de Riscal, and others. We purchase all our wines directly from our partner wineries, without intermediaries, and we are their exclusive importer and distributor for the Czech Republic.
