Juraj’s presence was valuable for the whole atelier, lead to fruitful discussions and polemics, motivated the others and raised a question if the design curriculum in Czech republic isn’t stuck in its form and content that is no longer relevant to the social and civilization needs of 21st century.

– prof. Marian Karel, head of Design Dpt. at FA CTU

A highly unusual candidate - in a good sense - with a very unique, almost philosophical and insightful, approach to design.
