Vlastislav Hofman (18841964)

A renaissance man, Vlastislav Hofman found the best outlet for his many talents in stage design, but he also painted, worked in town planning and bridge building for Prague, designed buildings, interiors, furniture and decorative objects, and wrote prolifically on design theory.

In 1911, a few years after completing architectural studies at the Czech Technical College, Hofman became the first to design furniture in the Czech Cubist style. He remained faithful to the style until the beginning of the 20s. His best known set of cubist furniture was that for sculptor Josef Maratka designed in 1911.

Between 1911 and 1920, Hofman developed ground-breaking cubist ceramics, and metal and glass objects for the manufacturing co-operative Artěl. Much sought-after today for their originality and rarity, ceramics by Hofman fetch high prices at auction.

Though his many grandiose projects for the re-shaping of Prague's architecture in cubo-expressionist style never came into being, they laid the ground for the vocation of his life stage design. His creativity was at home in his hauntingly-lit, wildly drawn sets that ideally captured the aims of Czech expressionist directors of the time. Between 1919 and 1957, he designed over 250 stage sets, mostly for the National Theatre in Prague.

Many of Hofman's stage designs are held in the theatrical department of Prague's National Museum. His ceramics and metal boxes and furniture can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague and a number of museums around the world. Most of his correspondence and architectural and design drawings are held at the Getty Institute in California. (Biography courtesy of http://www.modernista.cz)
