quatrefoil girard card case
DISCONTINUED BY ACME, BUY NOW ALEXANDER GIRARD (1907 - 1993) is one of the greatest colorists, pattern makers, and environmental and exhibition designers of the 20th century. Hired by Herman Miller in 1952, Girard led the company's textile division where he brought color and life to the modern furniture creations of George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. Using folk art as his inspiration, Girard created whimsical and sophisticated designs that have urged us toward a more playful and expressive way of life.   His vision extended beyond Herman Miller to include many independent projects such as the La Fonda del Sol Restaurant in New York's Time Life Building, and the complete redesign of Braniff Airlines in 1965. ACME Studios was founded in Los Angeles in 1985 by Adrian Olabuenaga and his wife, Lesley Bailey. ACME made its first appearance with a limited edition collection of jewelry designed for them by Peter Shire, the LA-based member of the world renowned Memphis Group. Soon after the initial debut, ACME released a large collection of over one hundred pieces, MEMPHIS DESIGNERS for ACME, with the help of writer Barbara Radice and designerarchitect, Ettore Sottsass. Many pieces from this collection are now in the permanent collections of museums around the world (the Denver Art Museum and Brooklyn Museum of Art in the United States). The entire series is in the permanent collection of the Groninger Museum in Holland.
