Contemporary Czech porcelain on display at Deelive design store

Four Prague design stores you need to know

Prague has been renowned for its master craftsmen for generations, and it shows no signs of faltering thanks to a new cohort of artisans reinventing Czech design. Here, we take a look at the best places to find locally made, contemporary design objects in the capital

Close to Mandarin Oriental, Prague and right beside the famed John Lennon Wall, Artisème displays and sells locally made works of art and design. It’s worth a visit for the setting alone: an architecturally-pleasing former ecclesiastical building, with an adjoining garden.

Red Salon

Once simply an upmarket hair salon, Red was redeveloped in early 2019 by its all-female founding team to offer excellent locally designed womenswear and jewellery, as well as accessories for men and beauty products. Come for a blow-dry, stay for a wardrobe refresh.
