Designer: Alexander Girard
The motif on this design by Alexander Girard—a hypnotic maze of interconnected knots—serves as a beautifully graphic backdrop for any space. Originally created in 1972 to enhance Herman Miller’s Action Office furniture system, the archival reissue now adds personality to both living and working environments. The 47-by-76-inch canvas print is 1.5-inches deep and comes pre-mounted so it’s easy to hang. Mounting hardware is included.
Alexander Girard’s mission when developing 40 decorative silkscreen designs for Action Office in 1972 was a simple one: to give the first-ever open-plan furniture system “aesthetic functionalism.” Unlike the designer’s printed textiles with repeated patterns, the fabric panels consisted of single stand-alone images that range from figurative pictograms to abstract designs. Dynamic, large in scale, and vibrant in color, they were the perfect embodiment of Girard’s belief that design should bring beauty, fun, and sensuality to our world.
