Nanovo Shop sells hand-picked vintage housewares and designy tchotchkes and doodads from Czechoslovakia's Soviet era.
(via Core 77)
heh, looks like i can start selling out the old stuff in my grandparents basement and loft.
The wrist watch, .5l beer mug and modular table lamb looks interesting tho.
Czech design is highly under rated
Neat. My ancestors are Czech. I guess for the longest time it was just known as Bohemia.
Is it me or is the shop’s site down?
Hi , sorry we had some technical problems. Its working again.
it’s a good thing I understand some Russian because I can’t tell what the hell half of those things are by looking at them.
Have always loved these clock and watch faces. Wish I knew of some affordable, similar looking watches available here in the states. At 77 euro, that mounted hanging clock is a bargain!
I’ve got that chair with ottoman in my living room. Good to know other people think it’s awesome too. I guess I’ve got good taste.
Wow! Prague spring! Makes me want to read Vaclav Havel and cheer! (with beer, of course…)
