A picture is worth a thousand words
The patterns by Alexander Girard include images for every event. The carefully designed patterns include a cloverleaf, the sun, a heart, a bouquet and much more suitable symbols for sunny greetings, love messages or a friendly “thank you”.
Alexander Girard was one of the most influential people of American post-war design, being an architect, designer and graphic designer. Contrasting the minimalistic work of other designers, Girard’s creations bribe by special playful components.
Alexander Girard created more than 300 different graphic designs during his career. The numerous patterns mirror the passion of the designer for nature, urban life and folk arts displaying floral forms and colourful, geometrical patterns.
Vitra re-edited some of the most popular graphic designs in the Vitra Home Complements Collection together with the Studio Girard.
