The Gallery of West Bohemia in Pilsen is proud to be part of the ‘Director’s Choice’ series. The book presenting 37 artworks from the collections of the gallery was introduced in September 2019 in the Masne kramy exhibition hall.
Oskar Semler’s family apartment is a unique architectural monument of 20th century interior design in the Czech Republic. Oskar Semler was co-owner of a wire ware company specializing in manufacturing “Sem” gramophone needles. Although it is most probable that the architect Adolf Loos participated only by devising the overall concept of the space, which was further developed and detailed by his apprentice Heinrich Kulka, this interior design represents not only Loos’s last work, but the climax of his activity in Pilsen.
