As a textiles designer, architect, interior designer, and collector, Alexander Girard developed materials and patterns that conform with the most innovative furniture of his time in the textiles department at Herman Miller in a leading position from 1952 to 1975. At that time, the design of the Love Cushion also emerged which, today, is produced by the manufacturer Maximo according to the original creation by Alexander Girard.
The Love Pillow consists of 100% cotton and appears with a huge, red heart and the word “love” in its middle. Furthermore, along the lower edge, there Alexander Girard’s signature can be found.
Alexander Girard is counted among the most embossing figures of American design during the post-war period together with George Nelson, as well as Charles and Ray Eames. The designs from Girard are still distributed by manufacturers like Maximo, Herman Miller, Vitra, and other producers. They have not lost any of their currency even today.
