Anima in the Heart of Glass Elegance

During a time when the Republic of Turkey celebrated its 100th anniversary and the Czech Republic marked 105 years of its existence, Anima was invited to participate in an exhibition of Czech Glass Masters under the auspices of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Istanbul.

The exhibition, held in the last week of October at the Hilton Bosphorus Hotel in Turkish Istanbul, brought together top artistic works, beautifully cut glass, and glass products for everyday use with original designs and shapes. Original pieces of Czech jewelry, adorning the most beautiful girls in the Czech Republic, the finalists of Miss Czech Republic, were also showcased.

The list of exhibitors included names such as Halama Glass, Ladislav Ševčík Bohemia Crystal, Lasvit, Subfossil Oak, Misamo, Ivana Mašitová GlassArtist, and others. Each participant brought their unique pieces to the exhibition space, creating a fascinating mosaic of glass art.

We are very proud that our Anima hookahs, with their unique shapes and solutions in working with glass, were selected among the exhibits. Thanks to the overall popularity of hookahs in Turkey, we did not get lost in this rich competition and found our way to a large number of new admirers.

Result of the entire exhibition surpassed all our expectations, and we now believe that, together with the team of other Czech manufacturers, exporters, and artists, we have initiated a new tradition. We are committed to continuing to contribute to building the reputation of Czech glassmaking abroad.

Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to all the visitors, co-exhibitors, and especially the entire team of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Istanbul. Their ambitious plan became a reality thanks to their dedication and professional approach.
