Alexander Girard Graphic Print Maze Pillow

alexander girard graphic print maze pillow

Design Alexander Girard, 1961
100% cotton fabric cover, duck half down filling
Made by Vitra

The architect and designer Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. His passion for colors, patterns and textures found expression in the field of textile design, which was a focal part of his oeuvre.

In his work, Girard paired motifs from folk art sources with abstract patterns. Many of his figures and patterns exude a cheery playfulness, and thanks to their vivid colors, even his simplest graphic motifs possess a high degree of differentiation.

The Graphic Print Pillows are now bringing a number of these designs to life again: abstract graphics and expressive figurative motifs create striking accents. The soft pillows are optimally suited as a decorative accessory for a diverse range of interior styles. Each pillow features inkjet-printed washable pillow covers made of 100% cotton.

Alexander Girard was educated in Europe as an architect. Returning to the United States in 1932, his designs defined a new kind of "opulent modernism", a look that became synonymous with 1960s America. His pioneering work in fabric design as well as his innovative commercial and residential interiors, captivated the public with their theatricality. Girard described himself as "a reasonable and sane functionalist, tempered by irrational frivolity."

Alexander Girard

Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993) affectionately known as Sandro, was an architect and a textile designer born in New York City and raised in Florence, Italy. A graduate of the Royal School of Architecture in Rome, Girard refined his skills in both Florence and New York. Girard is widely known for his contributions in the field of American textile design, particularly through his work for Herman Miller (1952 to 1975), where he headed the fabric and textile division and created fabrics for the designs of George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. He also developed a highly sought-after furniture collection for Herman Miller in 1967, building on his designs for Braniff Airlines' lounge and office furniture.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra’s approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company’s contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
