About Alexander Girard
Trained as an architect but proficient in nearly all design disciplines, Alexander Girard (1907-1993, United States) had a profound impact on 20th-century visual culture. As founding director of Herman Miller's textile division from its formation in 1952 until 1973, Girard generated more than 300 patterns from his outpost in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Reflecting his love of international folk art and unhampered by contemporary dictums of style and taste, Girard explored wildly different approaches to color, form, pattern, and construction. The resulting body of work is staggering not only in sheer volume and creativity, but due to its fundamental qualities of beauty and usefulness, remains completely relevant today.
