Half decorative element, half toy, this wooden dolls initially emerged for the personal use of the designer Alexander Girard. According to the sometimes cheerful, sometimes grim originals of his heritage, the collection has been re-edited as an enrichment for every furnishing.
The Wooden Dolls were initially designed by Alexander Girard for his house in Santa Fe and are self made. Inspiration for the small figures was found by the designer in his own extensive folk art collection.
In cooperation with Charles and Ray Eames, as well as George Nelson, Alexander Girard is counted among the embossing figures in American design of the post-war-period. The focus of his wide product range was the textile design, whereas the intense work with South American, Asian, and East European folk art was a huge inspiration source.
The Wooden Dolls consist of fir wood and are hand coloured. The delivery occurs in a printed wooden box with the brochure.
The Wooden Dolls with the numbers 13 – 16 are also available.
