A game designer, in 1921 he created the “Factory Town”, a very pure educational game of blocks that Vilac reissued 100 years later in cooperation with the artist Gérard Lo Monaco and the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art. 3 unique copies still exist in the world, including one exhibited at the MoMa in New-York.
