Libuse Niklova – toy designer

after ww2, wood is too expensive and rare to keep doing toys out of it. tchek designer Libuse Niklova then came up with a new vision for the toys she was designing for the company Gumotex Breclav. her toys got new shapes, new colors and an instant success. i personally like the simple yet not simplistic shapes of those pieces of design that don’t feel dated after almost 50 years. jeff koons, man, you’re out! by pp.
