Design Alexander Girard, 1965
Virgin wool, cotton
Made by Herman Miller

In 1965, the Jack Tinker Agency hired Alexander Girard to orchestrate what amounted to a complete overhaul of the Braniff International Airway's brand experience. From playing cards and matchbooks, to baggage tags and tickets, to the airport lounges and planes, Girard marshaled his talents into a comprehensive scheme that signaled "the end of the plain plane," ultimately making 17,543 design changes that included 56 textiles for use in the interiors of Braniff planes. These fabrics featured a range of geometric patterns and related to one another with a consistent mix of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors.

Recreated today by Pendleton, whose blankets Girard avidly collected, the 4 designs are crafted from a blend of 82 percent naturally breathable, wrinkle resistant, 82% high-quality virgin wool and 18 percent cotton.

These designs are just a few examples of Girard's unparalleled body of work that stands wholly apart from his contemporaries. From his outpost in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he designed over 300 textiles in multitudes of color-ways, multiple collections of wallpaper, decorative prints and wall hangings, an expansive group of furniture, and both decorative and useful objects-a body of work well ahead of its time.
