The second exhibition will focus on events in the field of design of technical disciplines in Zlín (Gottwaldov) and its wider surroundings. Its origin is connected with the beginning of the teaching of the shaping of machines and tools in Zlín at the university level in 1959. The end represents the division of Czechoslovakia and at the same time the demise of existing social and economic structures associated with the disintegration of the institutional framework of Czechoslovak design. The dominant personalities of the observed period are especially teachers and designers Zdeněk Kovář and František Crhák, who with their works co-created the distinctive face of not only Zlín but also Czechoslovak design.
