Along with his colleagues Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures in American design during the postwar era. While textile design was the primary focus of Girard‘s oeuvre, he was also admired for his work in the graphic arts as well as furniture, exhibition and interior design.
Girard brought a sensuous playfulness to twentieth-century design that had been absent from the austere aesthetic of classic modernism. The Classic Trays, which are made of laminated plywood, come in assorted motifs classictrayscreated by Girard for various purposes and selected by Vitra in cooperation with the Girard family.
Material: laminated plywood, food-safe, not dishwasher-safe.
