Details

Together with Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson, Alexander Girard was one of the leading figures of postwar American design. A key source of inspiration for his wide-ranging oeuvre, which focused primarily on textile design, was his passion for the folk art of South America, Asia and Eastern Europe.

The decorative Wooden Dolls, designed and made by Girard for his own home in Santa Fe, were likewise inspired by his extensive personal collection of folk art. Part decorative object, part toy, the Wooden Dolls are based on originals from the Girard estate in the holdings of the Vitra Design Museum.
