Alexander Girard was a versatile, skilled architect and designer of furniture and textiles, interior design, graphic design, exposition design and industrial design. The Graphic Pillows by Vitra represent the versatility and the graphic skills of the American designer.
Cheerful colours and patterns, abstract and geometric shapes or unique colour constellations: this is the world of Alexander Girard. The architect and designer is one of the formative figures of American post-war design. The focus of his creations was designing textiles. Doing so, he developed his love for colours, textures and graphic patterns. His designs such as the Graphic Pillow Hand now enhance the accessories collection of Vitra.
In his work, Girard unified motifs of traditional arts and abstract patterns. Even his simplest graphical patterns achieve high differentiation because of their clear colours and many of his patterns and figures express delighted playfulness. The Graphic Print Pillows revive some of these designs:
Abstract graphical or expressive figurative motifs create powerful highlights. Vitra manufactures the Graphic Pillow Hand with a cover of 100% cotton and a filling of duck half-down. This way, the soft Vitra Graphic Pillow Hand serves as a decorative accessory for any furnishing styles.
