Video: Behind the scenes of Škoda Design
The home of ŠKODA Design is a villa built in 1890 on the banks of the Jizera river in the Česana area of Mladá Boleslav.
It’s part of the advanced and tightly guarded Škoda Auto Technology Centre, which was moved to Česana in 2008 and modernised again in 2015. This is where futurist technology and tradition meet in idyllic surroundings to generate a very special atmosphere conducive to creative work.
And it is here that lead designer Oliver Stefani, along with 150 employees from 26 countries, develops the company’s future design language.
The villa was once the private residence of textile manufacturer Franz Hiller. During the 19th century, the site first came to house textile production plants. Parts manufacturing for ŠKODA vehicles arrived in the mid-20th century.
