100 Years of Czech Design

An introduction to 100 years of Czech design, with a focus of pieces from the Museum of Decorative Arts In Prague

In addition to being the birthplace of the artist Alphonse Mucha, what is today the Czech Republic gave rise to Czech Cubism, a unique style that was influenced by French painting. And during the 20th century, the country became renowned for a wealth of alluring designs, including everything from animation to toys. But it was also during the 20th century that designers found themselves at the mercy of war, foreign occupation, and constant changes in the national political situation.
In this exhibition, we introduce some 200 items from the collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague, including furniture, commercial products, and posters. The works, displayed in chronological order, not only illustrate the influence of Czech political situation but also those of Europe as a whole on 20th century design.
