Wladyslaw Strzeminski (Minsk, November 21, 1893-Lódz, December 28, 1952) was a renowned Polish avant-garde artist. Towards the decade of the 1920s he built his particular theory of "unism" which was of great help to musician and composer Zygmunt Krauze. He also stands out as co-creator of the avant-garde art collection of "Lord" collected by the "a.r" collective. After the war he dedicated himself to teaching, teaching plastic arts and design.

Katarzyna Kobro (January 26, 1898 in Moscow - February 21, 1951 in Lódz) The other half of this duo was a Polish sculptress of Latvian, Russian and German origin. Her great strength was to embrace constructivism, leaving aside such currents as individualism, subjectivism or expressionism. Its most marked objective was always the construction of the abstract work cemented on the pillars of experimentation and analysis. Her sculpture conceptualizes the infinite space, taking as reference the origin of the system by coordinates.
