Our story


Two friends and college classmates, Jiri Andel and Pete Isev founded Yakobium as an art and design studio in 2017. Based on Jiri’s 2012 project “Shape One” — a light object made entirely from sandstone — the studio started to work on its first range of designs inspired by the natural rock formations of Bohemian Paradise in the Czech Republic. Hard work, craftsmanship, and dedication paid off, and Yakobium soon revealed the world’s first sculptured sandstone light objects. Later on, followed by award-winning sandstone bow-tie. Yakobium merges innovative technology, science, and art to create one-of-a-kind pieces. Every single product is original and is currently available for purchase through and partners.
