Jiří Jiroutek was born in 1928 in Pardubice in former
Czechoslovakia. After his military deployment during WOII, he started working for the newly established company Interiér Praha which became one of the largest Czechoslovakian furniture producers. In 1958 he designed the famous U-450 sideboard series that turned out to become one of the most sought after furniture pieces during two decades. When he met Ingvar Kamprad he was asked to come to Sweden to design for Ikea which he did for about four years after which he returned to Czechoslovakia to work with Interier Praha again.
