The Grand Café Orient

The Grand Café Orient, in Prague, is practically a museum. It’s the only surviving Cubist interior in the world. The architecture, furniture, decor and light fixtures, created in 1911 by the architect Josef Gočár, were faithfully restored in 2002. It’s definitely a fascinating place to slowly savor an espresso while contemplating every decorative detail!

Cubism was an art movement initiated by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. It was reflected in painting, sculpture, architecture, design and literature, and inspired avant-garde artists, like Le Corbusier!
