THE BEST recent furniture designs of professional Slovak designers and students, recently shown at the Design Forum 2004 exhibition in Nitra, are currently on display in Bratislava. An international jury selected the best works; the main Atrium Award went to Etela Lučová for her rattan furniture set.

Visitors may see and purchase the 27 works - including shelf sets, chairs, lamps, and tables - at the Atrium Furniture House at Einsteinova 9, in the Petržalka part of Bratislava. The exhibition is open daily from 10:00 to 20:00 until March 31.
