alexander girard color wheel ottoman

Design Alexander Girard, 1967
Polished aluminum, upholstery, nylon glides
Made by Herman Miller®

Playful, colorful, and graphic, the Girard Color Wheel Ottoman is unmistakably the work of Alexander Girard. Available in an array of bold colors, or distinctive stripes, this low upholstered piece serves equally well as a footrest, coffee table, extra seat, or conversation starter.

Trained as an architect, but proficient in all manner of activities, Alexander Girard was introduced to Herman Miller through Charles Eames and George Nelson, established the Herman Miller Textile Division in 1952, and served as its Director of Design until 1973. From his outpost in Santa Fe, New Mexico, he designed over 300 textiles in multitudes of colorways, multiple collections of wallpaper, decorative prints and wall hangings, an expansive group of furniture, and both decorative and useful objects. His many corporate and freelance assignments-including the La Fonda Del Sol restaurant and the total design program for Braniff International-engendered lavish praise for his diverse skills and unique vision.

With a resolute and reserved personality, Girard believed quality should speak for itself-and he did much to propagate the notion that life should be lived with a higher regard for the humanity of one's surroundings. His uncommon way of seeing and admirably undogmatic approach to each new solution resulted in an unparalleled body of work that is not only staggering in sheer volume and creativity, but due to its fundamental qualities of beauty and usefulness, remains completely relevant today.

The Girard Color Wheel Ottoman features polished aluminum with non-adjustable nylon glides. The ottoman is upholstered in either Jacobs Coat striped fabric or a coordinated trio of Hallingdal colors.
