Since that time his company, Techo, has become a leader in the industry and has supplied furniture to many prestigious clients including Buckingham Palace. The successful model of the Czech Olympic House in London was mainly Jiří’s idea. He deserves most of the credit for the way that the House was received by the public, media and London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games. The Czech National House in Islington was awarded the gold medal for its open spirit and hospitality by the Associated Press Agency.
