TV movie for DW TV

Her lamps have that certain something that you can not escape. But before they decorate a room, they go through a complex production process and the hands of more than thirty people. In the glass factory of Brokis in Janstejn, which manufactures Lucie Koldova's lamps, we could see this. Bohemian glass craft in perfection.
