Alexander Girard International Heart Textile

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Girard's International heart features the word LOVE in 19 languages and was designed in 1961 for the Textile and objects shop which Alexander Girard created for Herman Miller as a boutique showroom of textiles designed by Girard and a selection of Folk Art and decorative objects also curated by Girard.

Having been stored away all its life, this example is in mint original condition. Color is clear and vivid. It is upstretched and unframed, it is hemmed on all four sides and retains the original Herman Miller tag. It was stored folded, so some creases remain visible but can easily remove and it can be framed in the manner of your choosing.

The International heart in the metal frame is shown only as an example of possible presentation methods.
