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.
