While textile design was the primary focus of Alexander Girard's oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the areas of furniture design, graphics, exhibitions and interior architecture. Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism. For the Table Runner, Vitra collaborated with the Girard family to select the textile design Geometric E, developed by Alexander Girard in 1971.
