About Vlach's work
Vlach is best known for creating design work. Since the early 20th century, the word “design” has been used to refer to objects valued for the aesthetic qualities they convey. It was often used in correlation with the decorative-arts, but with the societal shifts of the 20th and 21st century, the term “design” expanded to a broader field, and now includes areas such as industrial design, graphic design and fashion design. Some of the most influential design movements include The Arts and Crafts movements and the Bauhaus, which triumphed in unifying artistic creativity with the manufacturing of objects.
