Václav Cigler (b. 1929) is an artist and designer of word renown, who earned his fame above all for his pioneering optical glass sculptures. He is a technological visionary who also applies his ideas to utility glass design, lighting systems, jewellery and pneumatic structures. This book is the first publication to provide period context to Cigler’s works. The book places special emphasis on drawing as the key technique for understanding Cigler’s multifaceted oeuvre.
