Ladislav Sutnar, a Czechoslovak, who was born in Plzeň in 1897 and died in New York in 1976, was a pioneer of graphic design and shared with his contemporaries of the Bauhaus artistic movement a taste for bright colours and simple geometric shapes. A game designer, in 1921 he created the “Factory Town”, a very pure educational game of blocks that Vilac reissued 100 years later in cooperation with the artist Gérard Lo Monaco and the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art. 3 unique copies still exist in the world, including one exhibited at the MoMa in New-York.
