Maharam Pillow, Checker by Alexander Girard

About

Maharam Pillow Checker by Alexander Girard 008 Black/White Designed by Alexander Girard for the Herman Miller textile division in 1965, checker is a simple checkerboard design offered in an array of colors. The double-weave construction allows the two colors to separate completely. The palette draws upon archival color combinations to evoke Girard's playful use of bright tones and remarkable contrasts. Founded in 1902, Maharam offers a comprehensive collection of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Maharam pillows feature celebrated textile designs from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, from re-editions of the work of Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and Verner Panton to recent collaborations with Hella Jongerius, Paul Smith, Scholten & Baijings, and Studio Job. Alexander Girard (1907-1993, United States) was an architect and textile designer who had a profound impact on mid-20th-century design. After graduating from the Royal School of Architecture (Rome) and working in Florence and New York, Girard became the founding director of Herman Miller's textile division in 1952. Girard's love of international folk art greatly influenced his work, and his designs became well-known for their colorful abstract and geometric forms. In 1978, he donated his collection of over 100,000 objects to the Museum of International Folk Art (New Mexico). 77% cotton, 23% polyester. Cotton insert with duck feather fill. Dry clean only.
