Libuše Niklová's red buffalos at Galeries Lafayette

On the occasion of the Plastique ludique exhibition at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, the luxury department store Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann presents in one of their window cases a levitating herd of Libuše Niklová's red buffallos in the framework of the Paris&Création event. The wallpaper was designed originally for the exhibition by Czech graphic designer Zuzana Lednická. Until August 5, 2011.
Libuše Niklová designed the Buffallo in 1971. Today the Arbor vitae societas reedits it together with its original manufacturer Fatra.
