About the Designer

Alexander Girard

Alexander Girard United States (1907 - 1993)

Alongside Charles and Ray Eames as well as George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures in post-War American design. The focus of his broad work was on textile design, and a key source of inspiration for him was his passion for the popular art of South America, Asia and East Europe. The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home in Santa Fe and made himself, are likewise inspired by his own extensive collection of works of popular art and were originally intended only for personal use. Based on originals found in the Girard Estate held by the Vitra Design Museum, this distinct company of dolls is now coming out as a charming enhancement to any interior. This doll is part decorative and part toy. One of the pre-eminent designers of American textiles, Girard's work is loved by many for its lively, vibrant and bold qualities. Girard collaborated with Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson at Herman Miller and designed many lively and exciting fabrics for them. Besides designing textiles, Girard was also an avid collector of Folk Art. Girard contributed his immense collection to the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The museum opened to the public in 1953 and has gained national and international recognition as home to the world’s largest collection of folk art.

About the Manufacturer

Founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany, in 1950 by Willi Fehlbaum, Vitra has been the retailer of the works of many internationally renowned furniture designers. Throughout those 50 years Vitra has had one goal: to make the place of work as appealing, productive, and healthy as possible. Vitra furniture can be found in countless successful companies and organizations, as well as in the homes of many private individuals with an affinity for design.

Convinced that rooms and interior design have a decisive influence on people's motivation, performance, and health, Vitra has made it their mission to develop furniture and furnishing systems that stimulate, inspire, and motivate, while also offering the body comfort, safety, and support. In order to attain this goal, Vitra has worked with their specialized team and renowned designers. Over the years, Vitra has exemplified that they are not afraid to experiment with new and bold ideas and eagerly anticipate and look forward to facing the new challenges of the world of work.

Vitra is vigorously persistent in creating products of the highest quality. Once in the factory, the Vitra staff manufactures the furniture to precise standards, individually ensuring the quality of each product. The focus on quality does not end at the factory door.

In order to further ensure the high quality in all Vitra products, Vitra has set up their own test center which monitors products against criteria that are far more stringent than the statutory standards.
