ZDENĚK KOVÁŘ
SCISSORS, 1959

Zdeněk Kovář’s tools still look contemporary today. Their organic style drew on work by his teacher, the sculptor Vincenc Makovský. He discussed the ergonomic handles with the factory doctors at Baa, having studied at the Baa Art School. For that reason he was primarily a designer of shoemaking tools. Although most of his works went into mass production, his progressive scissors remained at the prototype stage.
