Creative Director and Founder

BOHUMIL DOUBA, Creative Director and Founder

In 1998 Bohumil Douba founded Valentyno Home by CV. Rohman Java, a concept design showroom in the Meatpacking District, to showcase large-scale, sculptural furniture and lighting designs, hand-made by an expert artisan team located in Jepara, Indonesia.

Douba was raised in a family that appreciates work, design and travel. From an early age he was exposed to European artistic traditions and Eastern philosophies. Always inspired by the art, design and architecture of the art deco era, Douba has delved into studies of modern classics to inform his unique design sensibilities. As an artist, he continues to evolve each collection into complex new forms through the use of inventive architectural and recycled materials.

Each Valentyno Home design is hand-sculpted in Jepata for a one kind provenance, intended to be shared by generations to come, with many hours invested in each dedicated design, prior to its leaving the atelier and reaching the showroom.

Valentyno Home has been involved in designing many hotels, restaurants, and houses all over the world for more than 20 years through Douba’s creative direction and management.
