Along with his colleagues Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. While textile design was the primary focus of Girard’s oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the graphic arts as well as furniture, exhibition and interior design. Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism.
The architect and designer Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. His passion for colours, patterns and textures found expression in the field of textile design, which was a focal part of his oeuvre.
Beginning in 1971, Girard developed a series of screen printed graphics on fabric to add a touch of human warmth and emotion to office environments: the Environmental Enrichment Panels. For these designs, he showed a preference for abstract graphic patterns or figurative subjects based on such timeless themes as love, peace and freedom. With a multitude of diverse and inspiring motifs, these large wall panels were also frequently used in private interiors.
