Description

Girard's passion for folk art resulted from his extensive travels to Eastern Europe, South America, and Asia. He was a keen collector of this art, and it clearly inspired many pieces of his graphic and product design. For this and many other reasons, Girad's work surely stood out during the post-war period of austerity.

The Wooden Dolls by Alexander Girard are a large family of wooden figures representing human and animal characters. Girard designed them in 1952 for his own use as decorative objects in his Santa Fe home.

Designer

George Nelson, 1947/1953 

Being regarded as one of the most important figures in American design is George Nelson's biggest achievement. Active as an architect, a product and exhibition designer & a writer, he was a leading voice in the discourse on design and architecture over several decades. Vitra is the sole authorized manufacturer of specified Nelson products for markets in Europe and the Middle East.

Brand

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.
