The festive announcement took place in the Prague sales gallery Na Příkopě on 3rd October 2012 while the opening of the Designblok 2012 - the show of the Czech and world´s design.

A collection of crystal bowls produced by the glassworks as per design of Ms. Světlana Svatošová, the graduate of the Secondary School of Industry and High Scholl of Glassmaking at Nový Bor deserved a great deal of attention. The design of this young and talented glass artist was implemented by and included into the glassworks’ production programme thanks to its invention and demands on craftsmanship.
