Designer: Alexander Girard
An expression of exuberance, this design by Alexander Girard is a lively plentitude of white stars on deep indigo. The canvas print, originally part of a decorative panel series Girard created in 1972 for Herman Miller’s Action Office furniture, now brightens up living spaces as well as working environments. The 47-by-65-inch archival reissue canvas print is 1.5-inches deep and comes pre-mounted so it’s easy to hang. Mounting hardware included.
Alexander Girard believed that design should bring beauty, fun, and sensuality to our world. In 1972, this philosophy came to life in the form of 40 decorative silkscreen designs he developed for Action Office, the first-ever open-plan furniture system. Unlike Girard’s patterned printed textiles, these fabric panels used singular stand-alone images that range from figurative pictograms to abstract patterns. Large in size and in personality, the Environmental Enrichment Panels then, and now, usher Girard’s uncommon vision into settings of all sorts.
