Akant Art, v.o.s.
A company of restorers and artisans focused on the restoration of artistic and artisanal cultural monuments and parts thereof.
Members of the company are qualified to restore artistic and artisanal works in stucco and stone, paintings, gilded work, and works in plaster, metal, wood, and artificial stone.
The company was established in the first half of 1992 as an affiliation of restorers and entrepreneurs in the artisan professions that had up to that point worked for state enterprises specialized in the reconstruction of monuments. The company has its own employees as well as its own apprentice programme in artisanal disciplines. Academic painters and sculptors also perform restoration work for the company. The appropriate licenses the company has been granted by the Czech Ministry of Culture guarantee highly professional restoration work.
The company AKANTART received ČSN EN ISO 9001:2001 and ČSN EN ISO 14001:2005 quality certification in 2006.
Through professional contractual partners the company secures the compilation of historical construction and restoration research and the relevant laboratory work necessary for establishing restoration and artisanal procedures and technology (microscopic and mineralogical analyses of material samples, the composition of colour layers, and research of organic and inorganic components using infrared spectroscopy and research of inorganic components at EDAX and using microprobes).
AKANTART works mainly on landmark protected objects of a demanding nature. The company has workshops and an atelier, including storage facilities, with an area of approximately 1,500 m2. We own scaffolding, equipment for cleaning facades and interiors, or own transportation fleet, and all the necessary resources for restoring monuments. Based on the needs of the investor we can also arrange accompanying scaffolding, tinsmith, masonry, and other professional work for the restoration of monuments.
