Miloš FILIP

(1926–1966)

He was amongst the first post war generation of designers, who asserted for the new concept of pressed glass. He realized its potential and mass production character.

In 1955 he was a designer of UBOK. His first designs were made by Inwald Company, which he cooperated with.

The glass of Miloš Filip is characterized by geometric moderation and cultivated expression. In his designs he applies clear lines without decoration and substantial finish. In 1962 Filip used inverse approach in designing of a vase, at that time it was considered a very inventive thinking. The walls of vase stays smooth but the inside is accentuated with vertical ribbing.

He died tragically at age of 40. His entire creative period he asserted an improvement in creative and artistic value of former glass.
