Had you visited the V&A Museum in London some time ago, you would have found the tag "Anonymous" naming the designer of the Tesla Talisman 308U radio receiver. The director of the Slovak Design Centre Maroš Schmidt, however, proved that this Brusel, Art deco, streamline or fuel tank shaped receiver was created by designer Igor Didov in 1953 Slovakia. On 11th May, 2021, the former director of the Slovak Art Production Council and of the Industrial Design Institute, Igor Didov, would have turned 90.
