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."
