Born in the Czech Republic as a daughter of scientist and painter, Eva Eisler often refers to her background being very ‘’technical and artistic”. Maybe the combination of these two factors is what is needed to become one of the world’s foremost creative personalities in the design industry.
Eva is a multidisciplinary artist with international reputation and more than twenty years working experience in the New York City. Her unique stainless steel jewellery, as well as numerous installations and collections in furniture, lighting and interiors; has been part of the exhibitions of museums and galleries worldwide. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, The Pinakothek der Moderne, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston or Musee des Beaux Arts in Montreal are just few to name. Passion for architecture together with her unconventional ideas is what makes her accessory pieces special. It is like they balance on the verge of perfection and imperfection, while blending two different styles -Czech modernism and sensibility firmly rooted in the contemporary philosophy.
During the stay in the U.S she taught at renowned colleges such as New York University and Parsons School of Design. After returning to Europe, Eva wanted to share her experience and thus started teaching at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, where she is currently the chairman of the K.O.V Studio (Concept Object Meaning). Her aim is not only to educate students but rather deepen their understanding of the environment and the meaning of design and structure in our lives.
Eva’s talent and individual approach to art makes her jewellery sought after by renowned luxury brands in the Czech Republic and abroad. After all, not everyone can pride himself having such an influential referees as Massimo Vignelli who ‘’never leaves the house without wearing a piece made by Eva.’’
