Girard drew inspiration from his travels to Mexico and India, as well as from his fascination with traditional folk art. Alexander Girard designed this textile during his tenure as founding director of the Herman Miller Textile Division, from 1952 to 1973. Millerstripe reflects these cultural influences, utilizing vivid color and simple geometry. In order to remain true to Girard's vision, the Maharam Design Studio developed forty individual yarn colors, providing an exact match with the original warp stripe, while utilizing modern dyeing techniques. The designer and manufacturer have work represented in the MoMA collection. Made in the USA. Dry-clean only. 17h x 17w x 5"d.
