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 olourful and expressive motifs of these Stickers were selected by Vitra in cooperation with the Girard family from the vast array of images in the Girard estate, which forms a part of the Vitra Design Museum archive.
