“… wedges, arrows, spikes, stakes, knives and levers that overpower matter are all angled planes.” (P. Janák) The author is one of the creators of Czech Cubism – a movement that was internationally unique in applying the ideas of French Cubist art to architecture and the applied arts. Janák viewed the angled plane as a means of dominating, artistically transforming and animating lifeless matter; a disruption of calm and a rational balance of the horizontal and vertical.
