The round tablecloth with lace and geometric design by Alexander Girard at first glance recalls a classic tablecloth. However, unlike the model, the Vitra tablecloth is manufactured from durable and easy-care linen, which was printed in the screen printing process with the lace motif.
Thanks to the summerly colors, the generous tablecloth with a diameter of 170 cm is suited for decorating the table, as well as for birthdays or the daily coffee table, which like that is decorated with a classic design.
"Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism. The printed tablecloths were created by Alexander Girard in 1961 for the Textiles & Objects shop (T&O) in New York City." - Vitra

Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
