Description:

Born in 1907 in New York City, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design, along with his close friends and colleagues George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames.

The primary focus of his wide-ranging oeuvre was textile design: as head of the textile division at the Herman Miller Company, Girard created numerous textile patterns and products reflecting his love of festive colours, patterns and textures. He favoured abstract and geometric forms in a variety of different colour constellations, typically featuring a cheerful palette.

His upholstery fabrics remain as timely and vital as ever with many of them still being sold today. Having originally studied architecture, Girard made a name for himself over his long career in the fields of furniture, exhibition and interior design as well as in the graphic arts.

Merino lamb’s wool is a high-quality natural ?ber that comes from the ?rst shearing of the Merino lamb. It is extremely lightweight, ?ne and soft and o?ers optimum heat exchange. A great deal of technical and manual expertise is required to process the high-quality natural ?bers. It is for this reason that the blankets by Vitra are made by a German blanket manufacturing company with more than 100 years of experience in processing natural ?bers. The high-quality implementation of the designs requires a great deal of handicraft.
