Design Alexander Girard, 1972
Linen, white wall-mounted rod kit
Made by Herman Miller

These decorative silkscreen designs known as the Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels were created in 1972 to personalize and add an element of "aesthetic functionalism" to the installation of Action Office environments. Unlike Girard's printed textiles, the panels consist of single stand-alone images that range from abstract patterns to figurative pictograms. Playful and bold, the Girard Environmental Enrichment Panels serve as the exclamation point at the end of Girard's long tenure with Herman Miller.

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 modern textile panels have been recreated as linen-based tapestries with a screen-printed image, the sides are serged and they come with a white wall mounted rod kit.
