Designer: Alexander Girard
Alexander Girard’s arresting ribbons design is a dynamic addition to any living or working environment. Bold and eye-catching, the design is from the 1972 series of decorative panels Girard created for Herman Miller’s Action Office furniture system. An archival reissue of the 23-by-76-inch original, the canvas print is 1.5-inches deep and comes pre-mounted so it’s easy to hang. Mounting hardware is included.
Alexander Girard believed that design should bring beauty, fun, and sensuality to our world. That belief drove the development of the designs he created in 1972 for the first open-plan furniture system, Action Office. The 40 decorative silkscreen panels contained striking stand-alone images such as figurative pictograms and abstract patterns, which were a departure from the repeated patterns of Girard’s printed textiles. Colorful and charming, these designs now, as then, enhance environments with their energy and sense of playfulness.
