Ladislav Sutnar

Ladislav Sutnar

Sutnar is best described by the word pioneer, because he developed new ways of thinking and creating. He boldly realised things that today’s generation takes for granted. With his all-round talent he joined the community of modern European designers and architects who were striving to maximise the quality of the everyday environment.

The breadth of his creative and organisational activities is astounding. He modernised the design of everyday items and publications, toys and puppets, architecture, exhibition stands and specialised education, and exerted a major influence on the lifestyle of the middle classes in interwar Czechoslovakia.
