For the very first time, Vitra has selected several products to create a special seasonal assortment for a limited period: the Spring / Summer 2019 Girard Collection encompasses versions of existing or new accessories with coordinated designs, a number of which will feature the new International Love Heart motif.In his patterns and motifs, Alexander Girard typically relied on pure, clear colours, appreciating and admiring their bold impact in folk art and other contexts. From time to time, however, he also worked with the strong contrasts of black and white, as exemplified by the International Love Heart or the design of the elegant restaurant L’Etoile in New York City in 1966.
For the Spring / Summer 2019 Girard Collection, Vitra has put together a number of accessories by Alexander Girard in shades of black and white. Thanks to their perfectly coordinated designs and neutral palette, the objects can be combined with a wide range of different colours, shapes and materials. This versatility makes them ideally suited as understated companions for the bright and colourful spring season.
