The jewelry by Zdeněk Vacek and Daniel Pošta is manufactured with emphasis on every last detail and present one of the most prominent works on the Czech modern jewelry scene. The perfect knowledge of the craft that Zdeněk Vacek acquired by graduating as goldsmith and jeweler and by working in various goldsmith studios together with his creative talent combine perfectly with the design-thinking and sense of material and detail coupled with the manifold foreign experience of Daniel Pošta, who studied at the design studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Thanks to their tremendous talent and progressive approach to material and its processing, Daniel Pošta and Zdeněk Vacek have established themselves among the best in their field. Their mutual cooperation is in perfect harmony and it is hard to determine with their common exploration of the world of design jewelry where specific ideas of each designer begins and ends. Their jewelry is typical of combining organic shapes, technical details and sci-fi esthetics. They combine precious metals with materials, such as clusters of pearls, satin and synthetic polymers. In 2009 this creative duo won the Editors' Award at Designblok 2009 in the category The Best Presentation of a Designer/Design Studio for their collection of jewels called Bye Bye Birdie. Their latest collection that was also awarded one of the Editors' Awards at Designblok 2011 is called Zorya and depicts chemical and biological processes in which various objects are attacked by foreign substances. Jewels of this collection have the form of chains from gold and surgical steel that are attacked by Tahiti pearls, diamonds and pyrites, as well as necklaces of linen ropes on which shiny crystals parasitize like viruses. This collection was an inspiration for their Zorya collection of jewelry made exclusively for the Prague Simple Concept Store. For their Virus collection and for the concept of the Zorya brand Zdeněk Vacek & Pošta were awarded the Czech Grand Design award in the Jewelry Designer of 2011 category and at the same time were elected the Grand Designer of the Year as they received the biggest number of votes from all categories.
