About me

Jo Vávra is an artist and designer, she creates objects, spaces, situations and future scenarios. She is a co-founder of CECI Foundation, Berlin based design studio and multidisciplinary platform for collaboration and cultural exchange. CECI functions as a project space, soon to open a ceramic workshop and ceramic residency in Berlin. As Raj Sukamoto, an imaginary potter from Hokkaido, Jo makes functional and sculptural ceramics channelling alien landscapes that embrace the notion of meta-realities. Jo is a multidimensional woman, a global citizen, enthusiast, activator and social changer. She produces experiences, parties, dinners and rituals to inspire and create new ways of looking and communicating. She believes design and art are tools for more conscious living and positive programming. Born in 1991 in Krakow, raised between Krakow, Stockholm and Prague, Jo studied retail design in Teko University in Denmark. She began her professional career as a luxury fashion buyer in Shanghai. From there she moved to Berlin, eager to experience the underground music scene and the craziest parties in Europe. The city allowed her to try out a wide spectrum of jobs and projects, and to meet extraordinary, inspiring people. All that led her to start CECI Foundation in 2015. Jo is passionate dancer, experienced cook and baker, story-teller and adventurer.
