We took the first major step of our joint journey in 2020 in the proverbial heart of Europe. In Czechia, a country with a sense of craft and a rich glassmaking tradition, we, as natives of Liberec, have always been close to this multifaceted and fragile medium. Our hometown is located in the fabled North Bohemian "Crystal Valley", which has been synonymous with the beauty and quality of Czech glass for almost five centuries.


Our love for glass and many years of experience in designing and realisations have naturally resulted in the desire to materialise and present our own visions and original creations under our names. It could not have made more sense to establish a family business in a place with such a history – and Studio SALANSKY in Liberec was born. Since then, under the SALANSKY brand, we have been designing and producing light objects, solitaires, and sculptures for interiors and exteriors. Our production and custom designs are mainly based on hand-blown or technical glass, which sometimes encounters other media such as wood, metal or stone.


Based on your requirements, we can prepare a concept study for your chosen interior or exterior project and discuss the form of delivery. Our production takes place mainly in local glassworks and small artisan workshops but we are open to any kind of collaboration. We can either do the preliminary calculation, production, delivery and installation ourselves or in collaboration with your architectural or design studio.


Brothers Jan and Ondřej Salanský.




Jan Salanský is an independent artist whose approach crosses the boundaries of cultures, languages, disciplines, and styles. He develops designs that either follow or break the typical crafting sequences and, at the same time, build upon traditional methods. His work focuses on detail and the raw form of the material being worked, depending on the context of place and time. Jan is a product of the Czech creative community from Podještědí.


He graduated from the High School of Furniture Design in Liberec. Subsequently, he enrolled at the Faculty of Art and Architecture at the Technical University also in Liberec where he completed his Master's degree in the Environmental Design studio under the supervision of Prof. Bořek Šípek. Currently, Jan is finishing his PhD studies at the same faculty, focused on glass production in the context of the environments that surround us. He has also gained valuable experience during his internships in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, which is famous for its local Design Academy, or thanks to his long-term cooperation with Preciosa where he worked as a designer.


Ondřej Salanský graduated from the Secondary School of Mechanical Engineering where he acquired a flair for technical solutions. However, further paths led him to the product as such and then to study marketing at the Technical University in Liberec. He then gained work experience in a number of major companies focused on both product and corporate marketing.  


After many years of collaboration on a number of projects, both academic- and production-wise, the dynamic brother duo founded the brand SALANSKY & Co. s.r.o. Under their joint banner, they create glass objects, applied design, interior and exterior installations, and exceptional works of art, bringing unique complex solutions and processes to the industry.
