Porcelain sculpture of a hand, intended as a jewellery stand, made by the company HCT West Germany in the 1980s. The shape is quite obviously based on a design created in the 1930s by the Italian architect Gio Ponti for the ceramics manufacturer Richard Ginori. He designed the hand in a slightly rigid position and with simple lines. It is a model of a right hand, with the number 8.5, presumably the size, stamped on the forearm. It has not been refurbished, but it is in excellent condition with no blemishes.
The word Nanovo in Czech means something "anew", "afresh" or "again". We stumbled upon the name of our shop as we were chilling at Berlin's university in 2009. Two years later in 2011 our Nanovo shop opened. We are a shop with Czechoslovak and international post-war design, we sell and renovate furniture and we also design interiors. In 2016 we have received the Czech Grand Design Award "Shop of the Year". In 2019, we were awarded the EDIDA Award - Elle magazine award for Jiří Jiroutek's furniture reissue.
