Maharam Pillow, Quatrefoil by Alexander Girard

About

Maharam Pillow Quatrefoil by Alexander Girard 001 Silver Alexander Girard drew inspiration from his world travels, as well as from his fascination with traditional folk art. Quatrefoil, originally designed by him in 1954, represents these influences with its use of bold, playful forms, and vivid colors. 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). 75% cotton, 25% nylon. Cotton insert with duck feather fill. Dry clean only.
