About the Designer
Alexander Girard Alexander Girard United States (1907 - 1993)

Alongside Charles and Ray Eames as well as George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures in post-War American design. The focus of his broad work was on textile design, and a key source of inspiration for him was his passion for the popular art of South America, Asia and East Europe. The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home in Santa Fe and made himself, are likewise inspired by his own extensive collection of works of popular art and were originally intended only for personal use. Based on originals found in the Girard Estate held by the Vitra Design Museum, this distinct company of dolls is now coming out as a charming enhancement to any interior. This doll is part decorative and part toy. One of the pre-eminent designers of American textiles, Girard's work is loved by many for its lively, vibrant and bold qualities. Girard collaborated with Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson at Herman Miller and designed many lively and exciting fabrics for them. Besides designing textiles, Girard was also an avid collector of Folk Art. Girard contributed his immense collection to the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The museum opened to the public in 1953 and has gained national and international recognition as home to the world’s largest collection of folk art.

The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home and made himself, are inspired by popular art – as are the majority of his own collection of works . Half decorative element, half toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally intended only for personal use. Now they are a charming enhancement to any interior. The Wooden Dolls No. 17 - 22 complete the current collection.
