    Bohuslav Horak is a Czech architect and designer whose work is characterized by its handmade aspect and diverse use of materials and color. He started working with the German company anthologie quartett in 2000, when he presented the model for his 'Haus Liane' at the Salone del Mobile in Milan. The 'Metal Garden: Zaharada Bench' was handmade by Horak himself and has to this date been executed in only ten examples.
