MOLS Designers

Vera Soukupova

has been creating glass designs for more than 15 years. She grew up in an art-oriented family, and from a young age she learned glass painting in her family studio.

This led to her studying at the Artistic College in Novy Bor, Czech Republic.

Here, she learned various artistic techniques—from glass cutting and fusing, to stained glass making. Later, she concentrated more on crystal installations and object design in commercial and residential buildings. On finishing her studies, she worked as a designer for both Preciosa and Lasvit, where she designed dozens of stunning crystal sculptures around the world.

In 2019 she accepted the challenging job as senior designer at MOLS, taking her design skills to another level.  Here she creates specialised installations, both in terms of unique design and technical solutions, for some of the most luxurious interiors in the world.

Sophia Lukacova

is young and talented Slovak designer. The world of  glass was introduced to her in the Design Studio Origos in Slovakia where she was working as an intern. 

With guidance of her older sister, she finished her first works. Although Sophia has the artistic career still in front of her, even now her works are visibly full of clear aesthetics inspired in wild nature but also in current fashion styles.

From her works, it shines her youthful energy which bestows to the compositions breathtaking dynamics so characteristic for her great personality.


Arnie Hanck

started his artistic career as a musician and poet. In his youth he played in a jazz band and composed many songs. Later he discovered the beauty of glass making and travelled around the world to finally settle in North Bohemia, the cradle of glass for many centuries.

Arnie has been working with MOLS from the outset, and has developed a range of exquisite designs for a variety of projects.

He is particularly passionate about working with the blowers in the glass workshop, and watching his ideas being made into reality.


Zuzana Kubelkova

Later she started to work as a freelance designer for various glass companies, whilst continuing to produce her own glass art pieces and experimenting to combine glass and new materials.

Zuzana draws inspiration from her paintings, travels and everyday life, chemical experiments and new materials which clash with glass at first sight. She wants to create truly original works of art – pieces that the world has never seen before.

Hanka Vitkova

Hanka Vitkova was born in a region with a very rich history of glass making.

Nature is her main source of inspiration, from which everything derives its meaning, purpose and balance, and which provides such a wonderful range of colours and decorations. Hanka loves the precision and detail found in nature, which together form a perfect unity.
