Jan Rosol, born in Prague, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic), is a furniture designer living and working in New York City. His furniture designs are inspired by the Modernist movement of the early 20th century that was very popular in prewar Czechoslovakia, one of the centers of the movement in Europe. Simple lines of the architecture and interiors he grew up in influenced the concept of his future designs. His current work, though evocative of the Modernist movement, is original and contemporary, each piece incorporating art and function. Most of Jan Rosol furniture designs are organized into collections, including Avantgarde, Metropole, Mundi, Magni, LaCasa, Infinite, and Arte to name just a few. Each collection is defined by unique design ideas and progressive approaches to traditional techniques.
