Product Description

Bathing towels from The collection The Gift of Slovenian Architecture: Ivan Vurnik and Helena Kottler Vurnik are made of cotton, soft and highly absorbent.

Bathing towel Carnation: The motif used by its designer Blaž Habjanič derives from the painting of the interior of St. Catherine Church in Topol near Medvode, where architect Ivan Vurnik tried to establish the so called ‘national style’ in 1920. The Radovljica public pool, built in 1932, has not preserved its original form; however at the time of its construction it was thought as a modern and technologically progressive piece of work. The towel, related to the content of both works, was manufactured by Svilanit d. o. o., in an endeavour to preserve a long tradition.

The Gift of Slovenian Architecture is a collection of products representing key works of Slovenian traditional and modern day architecture. It was created on the initiative and under the leadership of the Centre of Architecture, which operates on the fields of architecture and education, raising awareness of quality built environment.

The collection The Gift of Slovenian Architecture: Ivan Vurnik and Helena Kottler Vurnik, the first in the series, is related to the works of Ivan Vurnik (1884-1971), an architect, and his spouse painter Helena Kottler Vurnik (1882-1962). The products were designed by young Slovenian designers under the patronage of the Academy of Fine Arts and Design of the University of Ljubljana, and were inspired by the motifs of one of the most interesting facades in Ljubljana, the decorated interior of the St. Catherine Church in Topol near Medvode and the ornaments of the altar stone in the chapel of St. Cyril and Methodius in Vrata valley. The companies Svilanit, Luci, Emma, Printing House Radovljica and ZkotZ have guaranteed the quality of the limited series. Let the Gift be an inspiration to you!
