El Lissitzky - Beat The Whites With The Red Wedge (OUGD104)

This piece of 1920s Soviet design endorsed the red wedge or triangle as a very prominent symbol within Soviet design. It was seen as a symbol of power and significant status for anti capitalism. This influenced the addition of the red Tetris piece with three protruding blocks in the 'Soviet Tendencies' design.
