Who said that medical products couldn´t be stylish? No one? So we make it.
Studio Zdravý Design / Healthy Design was born as a collaborative entity consisting of two designers based in Prague (CZ), who share the same innovative goals – Věra Kunhartová and Josef Vlk. The mission of this studio is to bring more creative life into the field of medical equipment and transform untouched medical aids into new cutting-edge products.
Věra Kunhartová is an open-minded Product Designer with a particular interest in the field of human aid. Her goal is to improve the functionality of our everyday experiences with a hint of style.

Health and improving lifestyle through the state-of-the-art design of medical products is our focus. The name Zdravý/Healthy Design is not, in essence, limited to something that is healthy, but also something good, correct, useful, helpful and aesthetically satisfying. Zdravý/Healthy Designs make sense in each of these aspects.
Our dream is to see happiness and fulfil the dreams of others for a wide consumer market, including non-profit organisations. It is both a pleasure to work towards fulfilling this mission as it is intrinsically rewarding to work with people who are handicapped.
