Girard Geometrics

Alexander Girard (1907 – 1993) is another favourite designer of mine. Girard’s work combined the timeless lines of the modern with the playfulness and bold color of Latin American folk art.

These geometric designs are very similar to the Anni Albers Eclat design here.

The following are available at Maharam:

Facets 1952

Double Triangles 1952

Checker 1965

Checkersplit 1965

There is a beautiful cushion, covered in a limited edition lined fabric design by Girard, in the Eames Office in Santa Monica that I have been yearning after for ages. Every so often I go in and gaze at it!

The official agent to the Estate of Alexander Girard responsible for re-introducing Girard designs to the contemporary marketplace is máXimo.
