The Potravinoprojekt of Prague was a food industry firm concerned with hygienic design. This is the plan for coloured interior fixtures for MPPV designed by Doctor J. Fišer in September 1958. The proposal, aimed at applying a standard colour theory to interior spaces, covers floors, walls, and ceilings in the workplace and other social areas. The chapters address colour quality, depth, pigment, types of lighting, reference planes, uniformity, efficiency lighting, and fields of view, illustrated with hand-coloured plates of colour wheels and diagrams, including mock-ups of interior spaces and people staring at colour schemes on tables and blank walls. A unique, unpublished document from communist Czechoslovakia.
