The ZORYA studio was established in 2011, preceded by a long-term collaboration between jeweller Zdeněk Vacek and designer Daniel Pošta. The studio quickly gained renown for its jewellery collections in which experimentation with form and meaning played a major role, fusing technological and creative methods previously absent in classical jewellery making.
Together, Vacek and Pošta have pursued the creation of objects bordering art and design. They have jointly received the recognition as Best Jeweller and Grand Designer of the Year (2011) in the Czech Grand Design Awards, and several prizes for Best Presentation and Best Jewellery Collection at the Designblok event in Prague. ZORYA has also been acknowledged by the curators of the SOFA Chicago fair.
