Factory Town Building Blocks
Why We Chose This
Czech designer Ladislav Sutnar began developing building block toys in the early 1920s based on his devout interest in the concept of "modular cities." His building blocks were specifically designed for mass conveyor-belt production and they now invoke a certain type of charm and nostalgia for factory towns. The Factory Town Building Blocks set is a design in MoMA's collection and Sutnar's work was featured in the Museum's 2012 exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000.
