Along with his colleagues Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the post-war era. While textile design was the primary focus of Girard's oeuvre, he was also admired for his graphic art as well as his work in 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. In cooperation with the Girard family, Vitra has chosen a few striking motifs for the Graphic Boxes from the extensive Girard estate held in the Vitra Design Museum archives. With their distinctive designs, these high-quality cardboard boxes can serve as unique gift boxes or eye-catching storage containers.
